1 (1 1/2-pound) eggplant
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 garlic clove
24 (3/4-inch-thick) Italian bread slices, toasted (about 12 ounces)
Cilantro sprigs (optional)


Place eggplant on a foil-lined baking sheet. Broil 30 minutes or until blackened and charred, turning frequently; let cool slightly, and peel.

Place peeled eggplant, cilantro, vinegar, oil, salt, pepper, and garlic in a food processor, and process until smooth. Spoon into a bowl; cover and chill 2 hours. Spread 1 tablespoon eggplant mixture on each bread slice.

Garnish with cilantro, if desired.
