  1. Using a fork, poke eggplants all over. Roast eggplants at 350*F for about 1 hour or until soft(or grill at 350*F for about an hour or until soft).
  2. Remove from oven and let cool until you can handle the eggplants. With a knife, split eggplants open and scoop out all the flesh into a food processor or blender(or into a bowl and use your immersion blender).
  3. Add remaining ingredients and puree. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary. Chill and serve with flatbread or as an accompaniment to main meal.
