  1. Preheat the barbecue, and when the embers are covered in a light ash place the aubergines onto the grill and cook until softened (this may take upto an hour depending on size), use a tongs to turn the aubergine. Once cooked allow to cool slightly before peeling.
  2. Using a spoon scoop out the aubergine pulp and place into a food processor. Add the garlic, lemon juice and seasoning, then process until creamy. If using tahini paste you can add at this stage also.
