Aubergine baked with garlic and cheese

    25 min

    Everyone in my family is a proponent of healthy eating, and as a result I have to exercise great care in picking ingredients and recipes. As a rule, aubergine absorbs too much oil when being cooked. This recipe uses no oil, which makes it lighter.

    Serves: 4 

    • 1 aubergine
    • 1 bunch fresh coriander, finely chopped
    • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    • 150g cheese, grated
    • salt and pepper to taste

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Slice aubergine into rounds. Arrange on a baking tray and place under the grill. Grill for about 5 minutes, then turn over and grill for another 5 minutes. Don't worry if they look a bit dried out, they will absorb the fat from cheese and will turn out just right.
    2. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    3. Arrange half the aubergine in a single layer in a baking dish, sprinkle with coriander and garlic and half the cheese. Then top with the other half of aubergine and again sprinkle with cheese.
    4. Bake for about 15 minutes, until the cheese becomes golden and bubbly.

    Easy, nutritious and my fussy vegetarian no wheat, no meat friend said it was "really delicious" which is his best comment on food! I substituted grated courgette for the coriander and it was lovely. I will make this again but following the recipe exactly!  -  14 Apr 2018
