eggplant hummus

Name: Jennifer Miller
Base: Falls Church
Recipe: 1 large eggplant 4 large garlic cloves (or more... I don't think you can add too much garlic) 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed 2 tablespoons lemon juice 1 tablespoon water 3 tablespoons tahini 1⁄4 teaspoon cumin 1 teaspoon salt DIRECTIONS Pre-heat the oven to 400°F. Prick the eggplant with a fork and place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake for about 40 minutes or until it collapses on itself. Slice it open to cool. If desired, remove the skin of the eggplant with your hands before adding the flesh to the blender. I like the skin so just drop the whole eggplant in the blender. Add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. If the hummus is too thick, add more water a tablespoon at a time until it reaches the desired consistency. If you'd like, garnish with paprika, pine nuts, olive oil, and chopped basil or other herbs.
