Tomato stuffed with Babaganoush (aubergine paté)

Today's recipe: Babaganoush or aubergine mousse paté,  is a tipical dishs from the Eastern countries.
It is very similar to hummus but the taste is completely different. 
You can eat it just with bread or with tomato as we are going to explain in the recipe.

Difficulty: Easy
Preparation Time: 40 minutes


2 Aubergines
6 small tomatos
The juice of half a lemon
1/2 teaspoon of Comin
1 Garlic clove
1 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon Tahini (sesame paste) or sesame
Olive Oil
Some Bread
Tuna (1 can = 50gr)


To prepare the Babaganoush:

1. Preheat the oven 200 ºC

2. Wash the aubergines and cut them in half vertically. Make some deep cuts in the pulp without cutting the skin of the aubergine.

3. Put some oven paper over the oven tray and place there the aubergines with the pulp down and cook them for 30 minutes.

4. When the aubergines are cooked remove the pulp and put it in a mixer with the salt, black pepper, cumin, (and tuna if you want)

5. Mix it all until you get the paté

6. Let it get cold for 1hour.

7. Before serve:

- You can serve it with some toasted bread or with "pan tumaca" (bread with tomato) and a bit of olive oil.
- Another option is to fill in some small tomatos removing the pulp of the tomatos and stuff them with the Babaganoush.

In both cases I recomend you to put some olive oil on top and spread a bit of paprika above the tomato or the bred with paté

Enjoy it!
