This was very good. However, I wish I had continued reading the reviews about the 'bitterness' subject before making it. Mine wasn't too, too bitter, but there was that funny tang I would have liked to avoid. A little extra sea salt (the only kind I use) in the mix helped. I recommend adding the lemon juice a little at a time; I found 1/4 cup to be too much for the medium-sized eggplant I used. Fortunately I realized it before dumping the whole thing in. Ditto for the tehina. (That could be why others found it too runny or mushy.)For added flavor, I roasted the eggplant over lump charcoal, with garlic slices in the slits. Gave it a nice smokiness. So, it's definitely a keeper, but with some minor modifications. Finally, the measurements seem to be geared to a large eggplant or two medium ones - it would have been nice to know that before making it.
