Excellent. Roasted the eggplant on the stove while making fresh tahini.

crowd pleaser everyone loved the intense smoky eggplant flavor and balance of spices.

Delicious! Easy to make. Make sure you roast the eggplants. I just did it in the oven. Sliced them in half, placed face down on a baking sheet, and baked on 350. I left them in the oven for about 50 min. I probably baked them longer then needed but I wasn’t in any hurry.

Brilliant. Had to scale the ingredients because I had only 3/4 of an eggplant. However, it came out beautifully.

Pretty darn good for my first try using raw garlic which was a bit overwhelming. Trying a second time with roasted garlic and I will seek to have a more tender roast on the eggplant to make it a little less lumpier.

I made it a few times now, really amazing meal! I actually like it with less lemon, just one and a half.

I would recommend starting with half of a large lemon for juice and add per taste; otherwise, it's good. I also added a bit more tahini.
