I love aubergines, but always buy them and can’t think what to make with them. Here is a lovely recipe that works great as a pack lunch, cheap, healthy and packed with flavour you can’t go wrong! It takes a while to cook but throw it in the oven when you are watching tele and jobs a good un’.
aubergine, feta, rocket (or any salad leaves), chickpeas, walnuts, oil, chilli flakes, honey, Italian herbs, salt and pepper
45 mins serves 2
Pre heat the oven to 180c. Then start by cutting up the aubergine roughly into 2cm cubes, place on a high sided roasting tray with 2tbsp of oil, 2tbsp of honey, 1tsp Italian herbs, pinch of chilli flakes and season well. Mix together and pop into the oven, after about 20 minutes add a tin of drained and washed ready to eat chickpeas and mix it all together. Cook for a further 20 minutes, or until the aubergine has halved in size and is starting to brown. Stir through 100gm of chopped feta, a handful of salad (rocket works well), 50 gm chopped walnuts (optional!) and if you fancy a bit of balsamic.
