Very, very good recipe. I didn't think I liked Baba Ghanoush until I had it as part of an appetizer platter at a local Lebanese restaurant recently. I had only ever bought the store brand pre-made stuff which was just awful. So I was inspired to try some of my own. This recipe was very good. I agree with another reviewer who suggested roasting the eggplant. Just place it directly on your burner for a few minutes until the skin is sufficiently burned (yes, it will smell like something is burning). Then wrap it in foil and cook it directly on the burner for another 30 minutes (depending on size), turning it over halfway. Then I put a plastic baggy over it for a few minutes to let it sweat, and the peel will come right off. I made the rest of it using the exact recipe, and it's in the fridge now. Delicious!!
