Tahini and Eggplant spread

This spread is very easy to make, and it is better than the store bought one because it contains no oil or other preservatives. Also, if stored properly, this spread can be used up to a week.

A few tips for a good eggplant spread:

– Always choose the lighter eggplants. The heavy ones contain more seeds, and are usually bitter.

– Use the kind of tahini that you like, and that have stronger flavor. Don’t use store bought refrigerated tahini spread.

The amounts in this recipe are not absolute, change them as you wish, and remember that this is a very basic recipe.
