- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 4
- STEP 1
Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/ gas 6. Place the aubergine halves on a large baking tray or two smaller ones. Drizzle over 2 tbsp of the oil and season the aubergines well. Cover with foil then roast the aubergines for 50 mins until tender.
- STEP 2
Meanwhile, make the lamb stuffing. Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan over a high heat. Add the lamb, breaking down the meat with the back of a wooden spoon. Fry for 5-6 mins or until most of the liquid has evaporated and the mince has started to brown.
- STEP 3
Add the onion and spices and cook for another 5 mins until the meat is completely brown and has become caramelised and sticky. Add the sultanas, pine nuts and parsley, season to taste, then set aside.
- STEP 4
Carefully scoop most of the flesh out of the aubergines and add it to the lamb, then refill each aubergine with the mixture. Return to the oven for 8-10 mins, until piping hot. Serve with a green salad.
