How Do I Make Baba Gannouj?

Here is how you make Baba Gannouj:

1. Cut off stems of eggplants, and poke several deep holes in them with a fork.2. Place eggplants in a baking dish, then cover eggplants in a thin layer of olive oil cooking spray.3. Bake in a pre-heated oven for 35-45 minutes, turning once or twice, until thoroughly cooked. (Alternative: roast whole eggplants on the BBQ grill for a sensational smoky flavor.)4. Let the eggplants cool for a little while before continuing (they don't have to be cold, but you don't want to burn your fingers during the preparation, either).5. Using a food processor or blender, combine olive oil and sesame seeds until seeds are pulverized and you have a paste (alternately, you can buy pre-made tahini).6. Add 1/4 cup lemon juice and 1-2 cloves garlic.7. Cut the eggplant into large chunks -- whatever size is appropriate for your blender or food processor. Add them 1-2 pieces at a time, and process until you have a smooth puree.8. Add more lemon juice, garlic, salt and black pepper to suit your tastes. (The full amounts listed here makes a very garlic-y and very lemon-y baba gannouj, so add lemon and garlic slowly, tasting often, until it is to your own liking.) Also, you may need to add a bit of water to get the desired consistency. It can be anywhere from a thick paste (great for spreading on bread for a sandwich) to a sauce (good for dipping pita bread, carrot sticks, or chips). Go with how you like it!9. Pour into a bowl, and let cool. Once it has cooled to room temperature, cover the bowl and chill in the refrigerator.3 tablespoons per serving. The whole recipe makes 26-30 servings, depending on the size of the eggplants and the amount of extra lemon juice and water added (step 8).
