Baba Ghanoush

2 small eggplants
1 garlic clove (crushed)
1/4-cup ground almonds
1/4-cup Ziyad Tahini
Lemon juice (1/2 a lemon)
1/2-teaspoon ground cumin
2 tablespoons fresh mint leave
Sultan Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and ground black pepper
Fresh thyme sprigs (to garnish)
Lebanese flatbread
6 Ziyad pita breads
3 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
3 tablespoons poppy seeds

Char whole eggplant over flame or barbecue grill (pierce outside to prevent exploding). Or peel and grill sliced eggplant skins in frying pan until slightly charred. Add insides of eggplant to mixing bowl. Add charred skins. Mix all ingredients. You can mix by hand or use a food processor on slow blend. Again, consistency is based on preference. Add lemon juice to preference. Pour olive oil over top to wet and create small pools (do not over do it). Ready to serve in bowl with pita bread.
