I found this recipe yesterday on Food24 and thought I’d give it a bash for our Meat-free Monday yesterday. My thing with the recipes is that they have to contain some form of protein and many of the vegetarian recipes don’t!
They took forever to make and I didn’t want to fry them so I rolled them in balls and stuck them in the oven which would have been fine if I hadn’t put flour on first. Which meant I still ended up frying them for a minute each. I really didn’t want to fry anything, but hey.
Etienne and Isabel ate them, Daniel had a bite and Mignon pulled her nose up, so all in all not so bad from a family feeding perspective. They are very tasty, but very filling (I did leave the mint out, it would have been too much for the kids) . I will probably try them again, but without all the breadcrumbs, I just need to figure out what to replace with. Any ideas?
Here’s a pic, I served them with Bulgarian yogurt, the combination worked very well!(sorry, the pic’s a bit blurry as the natives were restless, I was way behind schedule!)
I also have to shamefully admit that I have never actually cooked Aubergine. I have bought it a couple of times, but it has always just sat there glaring at me and then ends up on the compost heap or with the tortoises.
Anyone with some helpful hints on cooking Aubergine, please feel free to comment, I never thought I’d be daunted by a friggin vegetable!
