  7. Spoon the mixture into the reserved aubergine skins and place onto a roasting tray.
  8. Heat the potato & leek soup & add half of the cheddar and half of the mozzarella until melted.
  9. Spoon equal amounts of the sauce over the top of each of the stuffed aubergines, then sprinkle with the remaining grated cheddar and mozzarella.
  10. Transfer the stuffed aubergines to the oven to bake for 20-25 minutes, until the cheese topping is golden-brown and bubbling.
