eggplant one on me

so, here's something purple.
an eggplant.
it's washed, cut in half, then placed skin down on a tin-foiled baking sheet, drizzled with olive oil, salt, a spoonful of raw tahini paste and lemon juice. then baked at 185 C until the flesh is mushy to the stab of a fork. (approx. 30 minutes)

not an egg, but a plant. this is one tasty treat. 
it's soft, nutty, healthy, and filling. 
good as a side dish or a snack to eat.
i like the skin, but some aren't so willing.

oh boy. i'm pulling at strings today.
