  4. While soaking the eggplant, heat oven to 450 F.

  6. Remove eggplant from the oven and let cool until it can be handled easily.
  7. Then peel and seed the roasted eggplant.
  8. Put the pulp in a small bowl and mash with a fork, or put it in a blender and puree in bursts so that the eggplant retains some texture.
  9. Combine the Tahini and 1/4 cup lemon juice in a large bowl and mix well.
  10. Add from the remaining 1/4 cup of lemon juice as much as it will hold and still remain a thick paste.
  11. Add the green onions, chopped garlic, sesame seeds, 2 tablespoons olive oil, parsley, soy sauce, honey, cayenne pepper, and black pepper and mix well.
  12. Stir in the eggplant puree. Adjust your seasonings.
  13. Transfer mixture to a shallow dish or platter spreading it evenly to the edges.
  14. Drizzle the remaining 1 teaspoon (or more to taste) olive oil over it and sprinkle it with the chopped parsley.
  15. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
