Roast Aubergines or Eggplants Salad

Roast Aubergines or Eggplants Salad


Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 50-65 minutes

Serves 6

  • 500 g (1 lb) aubergines or eggplant

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil

  • 4 red peppers, halved, cored and deseeded

  • 6 garlic cloves, unpeeled

  • 6 tomatoes

  • 1 red chili, deseeded and finely chopped

  • 1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 50 g (2 oz) black olives, pitted salt

To Garnish:

  • 2 tablespoons chopped mint

  1. Place the aubergines or eggplants in a roasting tin, sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of the oil and roast in a preheated oven, 220C (425F) Gas Mark 7, for 20 minutes.

  2. Add the peppers, garlic and tomatoes and the remaining oil. Return to the oven for 20 minutes. Remove the vegetables from the oven and leave them until they are cool enough to handle.

  3. Peel and coarsely chop the aubergines or eggplants, and peel and slice the peppers. Leave the garlic whole (the roasted cloves are delicious mashed with the juices when you eat the salad). Put the vegetables back in the roasting tin, stir in the chili, caraway seeds, lemon juice and olives. Season with a little salt then cook, uncovered, for 10-15 minutes until the liquid has evaporated.

  4. Remove the salad from the oven and leave to cool. Transfer the salad to a serving dish and scatter with the mint. Serve at room temperature.

Note: If possible, make the salad a day in advance and keep it, covered, in a cool place, but not in the refrigerator.
