Thin slices of aubergine grilled and topped with a fresh tomato and basil sauce. This dish will be ready in the blink of an eye! You can serve for two as a vegetarian main, or you can serve 2 to 3 slices per person as a starter or side.
You can also chop half a garlic clove with the basil and tomatoes. If you don't have fresh basil, you can use dried oregano.
I made this yesterday with the following variations: I used a vegan pesto and added chopped cherry tomatoes to it, then used this as a topping. It was yummy! I must say that the auberrgine took longer, probably closer to 4 minutes each side and even then the thicker parts were a little firmer than I'd like. So I think thinly slicing them is important. All in all, a tasty side! I accompanied mine with this simple dal recipe: http://allrecipes.co.uk/recipe/30299/tarka-daal.aspx - 05 May 2018
This was good but needed a little something. Next time I think I will add a little seasoning, either Louisiana seasoning or some red pepper flakes. - 12 Sep 2012
