Ingredients
  • 3 large aubergines, pricked with a fork 
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 2tbsp tahini
  • 1tsp ground cumin
  • 1tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1tbsp pomegranate seeds
  • Flatbreads, to serve
Method
  • Heat the barbecue or a griddle to high. Grill the aubergine for 15-20 mins until the skin is charred and blackened and the flesh is soft. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool slightly.

  • When the aubergines are cold enough to handle, cut in half and scoop out the flesh. Put the flesh in a sieve and gently push to squeeze out any excess liquid. Transfer to a bowl along with the garlic, tahini, cumin and oil. Mash together with a fork until you have a coarse paste.

  • Transfer to a serving bowl, scatter over the parsley and pomegranate seeds and serve at room temperature with toasted flatbreads.
