    Instructions

    1. In a small sauce pan over low heat add olive oil, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Cook for 12-15 minutes until garlic becomes crunchy. (Note: keep on low as you do not want to burn the garlic). Remove from heat and strain garlic from oil. Reserve oil in a small container.
    2. In a small bowl combine sour cream, mint, lemon zest, lemon juice, cumin and 1 tsp garlic oil. Mix well and season with salt and pepper. Set aside in the refrigerator.
    3. Brush eggplant rounds all over with garlic oil, season with salt and pepper. Grill over medium high heat for four minutes on each side. Once grilled, transfer to a platter and drizzle sour cream mixture over eggplant.
