 ¾ Eggplants
 ¼ Garlic cloves
  tsp Salt
 ½ tbsp Pomegranate molasses ('Dibs Rumman' in Arabic)
 ½ tbsp Lemon juice
 ½ tsp Olive oil
FOR GARNISH
 Parsley (chopped)
 Pomegranate seeds ('Rumman' in Arabic)


1

Poke holes in the eggplants in several places using a fork and cut in half lengthwise. Liberally brush the fleshy side and the outside of the eggplants with some olive oil and place them face down on a baking tray. Roast until tender (about 30-40 minutes). If not tender by then, flip over the eggplants and roast with the fleshy side up for another 5 to 10 minutes.

2

Take the eggplants out of the oven and allow them to cool. Scoop the flesh out of the eggplants using a spoon and place on a sieve for 10 minutes to let the water drain.

3

Mash the eggplant flesh well with a fork. It should be smooth but still have small eggplant pieces in it.

4

Add the lemon juice, pomegranate molasses, salt, garlic and olive oil and mix well.
