Muttabal, aubergine mezze

Cuisine: Arabic


  • 2-3 aubergines
  • strained Greek yogurt
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 lemon
  • olive oil
  • tahini
  • walnuts


  • Roast the aubergines, however you can! You can put them in the oven around 220 degrees for 40 minutes, but you obtain the best taste when you roast them on grill once you want to barbecue at home!
  • You need good quality strained yoghurt! As I always I use my eyes and tongue to decide on quantities.
  • Mix with some salt, pepper, half lemon, garlic, olive oil, and the signature ingredient of the recipe, tahini! That is what makes this meze distinct from a simple eggplant salad with yoghurt.
  • The last touch is walnuts! It makes a huge difference and gives a great satisfaction.
