Lovely but the tahini does overpower a bit so would halve the quantity. Great with the moroccan spiced tuna as suggested :o) Good for weekday meal.

I used the amount of yogurt specified in the recipe but used a lot less tahini paste (I used about half a teaspoon) and used about 1/4 of a clove of garlic as I'm not a huge fan of raw garlic! I also missed out the fresh coriander. It was really nice though and will make it again

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

Thank you for your question. Yes, you could pre-griddle the aubergine, allow to cool, cover and pop in the fridge and then reheat when you're ready. Let us know how you get on!
