Eggplant Dip

1 eggplant, about 1 pound
Fuller Brush,Stanley Home,eggplant1 large clove garlic, thinly sliced
1 bay leaf

2 sprigs fresh oregano
1/4 cup nonfat plain yogurt
2 teaspoons lemon juice;
1 teaspoon chopped fresh marjoram
1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley

Cut slits in the unpeeled eggplant and stick the garlic slices into the slits. Wrap the eggplant, bay leaf and oregano  tightly in a large piece of foil and bake at 350 degrees until the eggplant is completely soft all over, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.  Turn the eggplant over after 45 minutes.

Open the package and let it set for 5 minutes. Discard the bay leaf, oregano and any liquid.  When the eggplant is cool enough to handle, scrape the flesh and garlic into the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade; discard the skin.  Add the yogurt, lemon juice, marjoram and parsley.  Process until smooth.  Add salt and black pepper to taste. 

Makes 1 1/4 cups;  serving size 1 tablespoon.
