Eggplants can be real freaks

Sometimes eggplants like to grow noses, as this Japanese eggplant readily demonstrates...

Baba Ganoush:

Roast eggplant (3 large will yield about 1 Quart) at 350. Chop off the green tip and STICK WITH FORK to puncture skin so they don't explode…. When cool, CHOP COARSELY and place in food PROCESSOR skin and all. Meanwhile, sautee one large onion in olive oil til transluscent, add a few large cloves of diced garlic and cook through. Combine eggplant flesh, garlic and onion, 7 – 10 sprigs of parsley, salt, pepper, 1/3 cup tahini, a liberal sprinkling of CUMIN, a dash of cayenne, Juice of one lemon. Blend til smooth.

Serve with toasted Pita...
