  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.
