Notes about this recipe

    Delicious moutabal recipe. I've made this three times so far and tried italian (teardrop shaped) and globe: italian eggplant yields the best result. Depending on the lemon size I found 2 Tbsps of juice to be the ideal amount. The garlic will bloom as it rests, so either make it roughly when you plan to eat it or soak the garlic in the lemon juice for 10 minutes (straining out the garlic afterwards) before adding the lemon juice for something that tastes the same on day 3 as it did when you made it.
