Ingredients
  • 2 aubergines
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Juice of 1 organic lemon
  • 3 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
  • Pinch Himalayan pink salt
  • Smoked paprika, to garnish (optional)
Method
  1. Set the grill to a high heat and place the aubergines on a foil-lined tray.
  2. Grill the aubergines for 15 minutes, turning occasionally to ensure even cooking. They should take on a blackened appearance and be soft all the way through.
  3. Once cooked, leave the aubergines to cool for a little while before peeling.
  4. Using a fork, mash the aubergine pulp in a mixing bowl and combine with the rest of the ingredients.
  5. Serve with a dusting of smoked paprika and toasted flat breads for a delicious mezze!
