Equipment

  • grill or gas stove, food processor

Ingredients
  

  • 2 medium globe eggplants
  • cup tahini
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic grated
  • Salt
  • 1 bag OMG! Lemon Pepper Pretzels reserve bag seasoning for topping dip

Instructions
 

  • Char the eggplants over the flame of a gas stove or grill at medium high heat for about 15 minutes. Turn them a few times as they cook for an even char.
  • Let them cool for about 12 minutes, until you can handle them. Put them in a bowl or colander in the sink as they will weep as they cool.
  • Peel off the charred skin and return to the colander for 10 minutes to let the moisture continue to seep out of the eggplant. It’s ok if some skin remains; it will blend during the next steps.
  • Add the drained eggplant to a food processor with the olive oil, tahini, lemon juice, garlic and salt.
  • Process until the mixture is creamy.
  • Add to a bowl and top with seasoning from the bag of OMG! Lemon Pepper Pretzels.
  • Serve with OMG! Lemon Pepper Pretzels and veggies for dipping.
