home-grown aubergine recipe
For dinner we had home-grown aubergine from the oven with curry, walnuts and honey.
A very simple vegetarian recipe for a quick surprise dinner. It looks exotic and oriental and has a very special taste.
Combine an aubergine with curry, walnuts and honey to get a real taste explosion. It takes only 10 minutes to prepare and the oven does the rest of the work. Serve it as a starter, side dish or lunch.
Ingredients for 2 people:
- 2 aubergines
- 2 cloves of garlic
- olive oil
- lemon juice
- black pepper
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Oven time: 1 hour
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Wash the aubergines, pat them dry and cut them lengthwise into thin slices and put them in a greased baking dish.
Brush the aubergines with olive oil and drizzle the honey and lemon juice over the top. Cut the garlic cloves into slices and divide them over the tops.
Finally, walnuts, curry, pepper and salt over the aubergines and put the baking tin in the oven. Bake the aubergines for about 1 hour. Keep a close eye on the aubergines during that time. If they get too brown on top, cover them with aluminum foil.
Meanwhile set the table attractively, because with a nicely set table, everything tastes even better!
PS: Last week I made a Moroccan Zaalouk salad with the first harvested aubergines.
