 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1                    eggplant
    3      teaspoons     lemon juice
      1/4  cup           tahini
    2                    garlic clove
      1/4  cup           parsley sprigs -- minced
      1/2  teaspoon      salt
    2      tablespoons   green onion -- minced
                         black pepper -- to taste
    1 1/2  teaspoons     olive oil
 
 Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut off the stem ends of the eggplant and
 prick it all over with a fork. Place it directly on an oven rack and let
 it
 roast until completely popped (about 45 minutes). When it is sagging,
 wrinkled, crumpled, and totally soft, you'll know it’s ready.  Remove it
 from the oven, and let cool. Scoop the insides out and mash well. Combine
 with rest of ingredients, except olive oil. Chill well.  Drizzle the oil
 over the top before serving.  Serve with assorted crackers.
