Roasted Aubergine

Aubergine, egg plant, brinjal… so many names for this delicious tasting fruit. And yes, it is apparently a fruit, not a vegetable! After a lovely day trip to Babylonstoren, my foodie friend and I returned with an arm full of beautiful aubergine varieties. We decided to get creative in the kitchen and experiment with different ways to prepare them. Thinly sliced, roasted and then rolled up with a basil leaf and filling was definitely my favourite. We also tried cutting small grooves into thicker aubergine wedges and inserted thyme into these. This added a subtle flavour but needed to be cooked for much longer. Aubergines are definitely one of my favourite foods so no matter how they’re prepared, I’m easy to please. Do you have any tasty aubergine dishes?

    Sounds fabulous
    Lana – can you tell us what the “filling “consisted of within the thinly roasted aubergine with basil please ?

    Thanks – Melly

      Hi Melly
      Plain goats cheese with fresh basil is a tasty and very simple filling. The Roasted courgette hummus from The Real Meal Revolution also makes for a delicious filling.

    I like creativity in the kitchen. πŸ™‚ I think aubergine is delicious and one of my favourite dishes, and the simplest one, is grilled aubergine sprinkled with sea salt and pepper. It’s also one of my favourite pizza toppings.
