Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Using the tip of a knife, score the cut side of the aubergines with a criss-cross pattern. Place in a snug roasting dish or tin. Rub with half the oil, season and bake for 30 mins or until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a frying pan. Add the onion and garlic, and cook for about 8 mins until soft. Add the thyme leaves, tomatoes, beans and half a can of water. Simmer down for about 8 mins until thick, then season.
  3. Spoon the beans under and around the aubergine halves. Scatter with Parmesan and bake for 10 mins more until golden.

This was a great healthy meal and very tasty. I added some breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese and basil whizzed up and scattered over the top before baking to give a lovely crunchy texture

Had this tonight with a salad. It was fantastic! Beans need a tsp of sugar though as tinned tomatoes can be a bit sour.

Looks great, tastes great and easy to do. The nutty aubergine flavour topped with parmesan was really good. Suitable for our next vegetarian guests!
