Method

  1. Drizzle the aubergine slices with olive oil and a little salt and pepper, and toss in a bowl. Heat a griddle pan until hot and cook the slices on both sides until soft and lightly charred; you’ll need to do this in batches. Leave to cool slightly on a serving plate.

  2. Meanwhile, mix the yogurt with the lemon juice, garlic and mint in a bowl. Season the mixture to taste. Drizzle the yogurt mixture over the griddled aubergine and serve at room temperature.

I've never cooked aubergine before. Can I pre griddle the slices earlier in dau then warm through in oven before dressing and serving?

Use parsley or coriander instead of mint as hate mint, but a nice simple side dish

Tasty!Good alongside a curry or something similar as the yogurt cools the hotness or spiceness of it.

Can I pre griddle the aubergine slices earlier in the day then warm through in oven before dressing and serving?

Hi Steph, yes you can pre-griddle the aubergines. Allow them to cool, cover and then reheat when ready. You'll always get optimal results if you griddle then serve straightaway but this will still work if you want to get ahead. Good luck!
