Vienna has a restaurant &flora with a lovely modern interior and a fireplace, fragrant natural wines and great food made from regional products with an oriental touch. The chef here is a beautiful woman of Iranian origin, very attentive and friendly, plus she always wears an eccentric multicolored turban bandage on her head.

At &flora, baked eggplant is served with tahini and mint, which was unusual for me (mint, not tahini :)). Coincidentally, I was having dinner there with my friend and colleague, an Iranian coach. She told me that they always eat eggplant with mint, and it’s the perfect combination. I will not be able to repeat the dish from &flora exactly, so you need to go there and try it. But I have created my own combination, which I share in this recipe.

Done

BAKING THE EGGPLANTS

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. Wash and dry the eggplants. Then pierce them in several places with a fork, place them on a baking sheet covered with baking paper and bake them for 1 hour. The skin should start to brown and the flesh of the eggplant should become super soft and creamy.
Take the cooked eggplants out of the oven and put them in a colander to cool and drain a bit.

MAKING THE SAUCE

Chop the garlic very finely.
Put the tahini, hazelnut butter, water, garlic, a dash of lemon juice and salt in a bowl. Stir it all together vigorously with a whisk until you get a thick white sauce. Taste and season it with salt and lemon juice to taste and stir again.

SERVING

Peel the hot eggplant off the skin, leaving the tail. Place the eggplant on a plate or board to serve, slice lengthwise and then diagonally across several times.
