Directions:

Preheat oven to 450°F. Place eggplants cut-side down on a baking sheet. Prick all over with a fork and bake until soft and collapsed, 40 to 45 minutes.

When cool enough to handle, scoop eggplant pulp into the bowl of a food processor; discard skin. Add garbanzo beans, parsley, red peppers, tahini, lemon juice and garlic. Process until smooth. Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with parsley.
