Method

  1. Thickly slice the aubergines and arrange over a grill rack. Brush lightly with oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, then grill until browned. Turn them over, brush and season again then cook until tender, about 8-10 mins in total. Remove from the grill and cut each slice into quarters.
  2. Drain and rinse the chickpeas, then tip into a bowl with the aubergine, coriander and red onion. Mix the dressing ingredients in a screw-top jar, shake well, then use to dress the salad.

I used a griddle pan for (just one) aubergine and also griddled the red onion & a green pepper I had that needed using up. I added morrocan spice mix to the dressing and chucked in some strips of salami that also needed using up - it was a tasty lunch

Just made this and it was a really nice light meal (or side dish).

I added chopped garlic to the dressing, which really gave an extra kick and used parsely instead of corriander as I don't like that.

Was very easy (but needed to cook the aubergine for more than the recommended time).

Great veggie dish. Griddled the Aubergines for extra flavour, and used smoked paprika as per Caro's suggestion above. Delicious!

Delicious. Every time I make it someone asks for the recipe. I changed the paprika for smoked paprika (my latest addiction).

I found this very easy to do. I had a courgette in the fridge so grilled this along with the aubergine.
We loved it and will certainly cook again

This was great. I've never been too keen on Aubergine but the combination of the flavours and textures was really lovely. It's better eaten the day you make it. I only used one Aubergine and there was enough for 2 meals. Work mates were jealous when I opened up my lunch box and I've passed the recipe on!

Loved it! I used the dressing to brush aubergines before cooking & this gave the aubergines a wonderful flavour.
