Aubergine Bake for an Aubergine Addict.

It’s no secret that I LOVE a good bargain, last week I picked up Aubergines for 10p, yes you read that right. I’d been saving them and ruminating in my mind about what I should do with them and then got inspired by a chef friend. So here is my aubergine bake.

Ingredients (serves 4):

2 aubergines

1.5 tins chopped tomatoes

3 cloves garlic

1 onion

1 stock cube

1 tbsp tomato puree

1 tsp sugar

Dried mixed herbs

Mozerella

 

Recipe:

  • Slice aubergines lengthways into long slices. Drizzle with a little oil and then cook on a griddle pan or under the grill for a few minutes on each side.

  • Whilst the aubergines cook, put the tins of chopped tomatoes into a pan with garlic, chopped onion, dried mixed herbs, ┬ástock cube (gluten free if required), ┬átomato puree, sugar and plenty of black pepper.
  • Bring to the boil and simmer the sauce for 15 minutes so it reduces and thickens.
  • Spread a layer of aubergine in an ovenprood dish, top with the sauce and then repeat the layers – a bit like a lasagne.
  • Finally top with mozzerella.
  • Bake for 30 minutes at Gas Mark 5.
