    Directions

    1. Place eggplant slices on baking paper on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with the rock salt and pepper and place under the grill until brown. When browned on top, turn eggplant slices over and return to the oven. It needs only a couple of minutes to start browning and easily burns if left unattended. Remove from the oven when browned and set aside.
    2. Place the tomato and spinach or silverbeet in a small saucepan, add a quarter cup of water, salt and pepper to taste, and two torn basil leaves. Cook on medium heat until cooked and all the water has evaporated. More water may be added if the quarter cup is insufficient. Set aside.
    3. Prepare hummus by mincing the chickpeas with a fork, adding the garlic, zest and juice, cumin and olive oil. Add salt and pepper to taste. Mix well until relatively smooth.
    4. To serve, use the tomato and spinach as the first layer, followed by the hummus and topped with the cottage cheese and sesame seeds. Add the eggplant slices. Garnish with basil leaves and a thin slice of lemon.
