Heat the grill of a barbecue or a ridged cast-iron grill pan until very hot. Add the aubergines, and grill, turning every so often, for 30–45 minutes until the skin is charred and blistered all over; it will become quite black. Remove from the heat, and leave to cool a little before peeling away the skin and roughly chopping the flesh.
Put the chopped aubergine, garlic, oregano (if using), lemon zest and juice, and oil in a blender or food processor, and blend to a chunky spread. Transfer to a bowl, and add the pine nuts and yogurt. Season with salt and black pepper, and mix well.
Serve with torn chunks of sourdough bread, or toasted slices of baguette.
