Substitute eggplant purée for the chickpeas. Make the eggplant purée as follows: Toast whole eggplants under a broiler, over a gas burner, or directly on a flattop range until the skin is charred and the eggplant is soft. Peel off the charred skin under running water and cut off the tops. Remove large clumps of seeds if desired. Let stand in a china cap or sieve to let excess moisture drain, then purée the pulp. Reduce the lemon juice to 2-3 fl oz (60-90 mL) and the tahini to 4 oz (125 g). Double the olive oil.
