|1||Pierce the eggplants in several places with a toothpick.|
|2||If you are cooking indoors, wrap the whole eggplant in aluminum foil and set it over a gas grill to cook on all sides until it collapses and begins to release a great deal of steam.|
|3||If you are cooking over coals, grill the eggplant until blackened, collapsed, and cooked through.|
|4||Dump the eggplant into a basin of cold water; peel while it’s still hot and allow it to drain in a colander until cool. Squeeze pulp to remove any bitter juices. Mash the eggplant to a puree.|
|5||In a food processor, mix the tahini with the garlic, onion, tomato, and lemon juice until the mixture contracts.|
