  3. Arrange on a baking tray, flesh-side facing up, then bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes, or until soft.
  4. Set the eggplant aside to cool for a few minutes and then scoop out the flesh with a large spoon, leaving the skin behind.
  5. Place the aubergine flesh in a food processor. Add the garlic clove, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and cumin. Secure the lid and blitz to a nice thick dip. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
  6. In a small bowl combine chopped tomatoe, fresh parsley and a pinch of salt.
  7. Transfer the baba ganoush to a serving bowl and drizzle olive oil on top. Then add the tomato salad and sprinkle some sesame seeds on top. Serve with Organic Quinua soffiettes. Will keep covered in the fridge for several days.
