  • 400g tin chopped tomato
  • 85g low-fat soft cheese with garlic and herbs
  • 3 tbsp fresh or dried breadcrumb

Method

  1. Trim the stalks from the aubergines, then cut each into 6 slices lengthwise. Lay them in one layer on a grill pan and lightly brush with oil and a little seasoning. Grill until lightly browned, turn them over, brush with oil again, then grill until browned and tender.

  2. Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a non-stick pan, add the onion and gently fry until softened. Add the tomatoes and simmer for 5 mins. When the aubergines are cool, spread half the slices with a little soft cheese and cover with the remaining slices to make sandwiches.

  3. Spread half the sauce over a shallow ovenproof dish. Arrange the aubergine sandwiches, overlapping, over the top and pour over the remaining sauce. Sprinkle over the crumbs, then grill until browned.

fiddly but ok

I found this a bit fiddly, and the tomato sauce definitively needs more taste than just a plain ol' can of chopped tomatoes. Some chili and fresh herbs helps. I also added pine nuts and parmesan to give the top some more crunch. For supper I served it with a fresh green salad.

I added garlic and tomato puree to the sauce, and pine nuts and parmesan to the breadcrumb topping, and it tasted good as a weekday meal.

Very simple to make and very quick to cook. I was disappointed that I couldn't really taste the cream cheese that much. But otherwise, simple and effective. Great mid-week meal.
I added a bit of mozarella on the top for extra cheesy texture and it was lovely. I think it would have been a bit too tomatoe-y without it.

I was disappointed by this recipe, as it seemed a bit fiddly for the results.
