Baba Ghanoush sort of thing

Do you know Baba Ghanoush. It is an aubergine puree - very delicious. So I just did a kind of this puree, but with a little variation - some kind of a mix in the direction of what they sell at this oriental stalls on the marketplace at market day (costs you a fortune, sort of, when you buy it there).
That's how you do it then. Grab yourself two nice big aubergines and chuck them for 20-25 minutes at 180°C in the oven - turning it from time to time. Meanwhile get yourself 200 g of feta cheese, 100 g of creme fraîche, 2 cloves of garlic roughly chopped, olive oil, salt pepper, some dried tomatoes (depends on your taste how many you like to use - I used some), a bit milk (a splash), some cumin. Put it all in a food processor or liquidizer. When the aubergines are ready, peel them (if you can stand it, do it right away or you have to wait until they cool of a bit). Cut them in chunks and add to the liquidizer. Then do it and have a nice puree. You may have to add some liquid to make it work - maybe more oil or milk.

I had to go a little bit piggy to get all from the liquidizer. It is just to delicious to waste any. What do you do now with it?
Have some nice bread and go ...
Or you can put it between a baguette with some roasted meat or ham on it and maybe some slices of tomato. Yummy yummy! Maybe you have also some lamb available.
Just enjoy it!
