2 lemons, juiced
5 tablespoons tahini

When cool enough to handle, set aside liquid that has collected in bowl. Scoop out eggplant flesh into bowl and mash thoroughly. Mix in garlic paste and lemon juice. Add tahini. If mixture is too thick add back some of the reserved eggplant liquid. Season to taste with cayenne pepper. To serve, spread out on a small plate, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with parsley and place a few olives in the center and on the edges of the plate. Serve with pita bread.
