Ingredients
1 large eggplant
2 garlic cloves, finely pressed
Salt
Olive oil
Lemon juice
Tomatoes

Directions
Place eggplant over a gas flame or skillet over an electric burner. Turn frequently until seared on all sides and partially cooked. It will appear soft, black and crinkled. Peel the eggplant and mash. In a large bowl, mix eggplant with garlic and onion. Add salt and a small amount of olive oil. Mix together. Add the juice of ½ medium lemon. Garnish with chopped tomatoes. Dip chunks of warm pita bread into mixture or spread on Melba rounds.
