Made this for my sister and I but had to use watercress instead of rocket as she isn't a fan of rocket. I like the idea of adding puy lentils

Very simple. Very tasty. More than the sum of its parts. Will definitely make again.

Lovely dish for barbecues. I added quinoa and puy lentils to add density and also roasted a few extra veg- yellow pepper, cherry tomatoes and asparagus which also added something.

This pleasantly surprised everyone at our BBQ earlier this summer. I'd say the recipe amounts would only serve 4 people as a small side salad or part of a buffet though, definitely not as a main salad/main part of a meal as the aubergines do shrink down in size with cooking. Ohhhh it was yum! Update: I've made this quite a lot now and add toasted pine nuts and a handful or two of baby spinach if I need to pad it out.

A nice simple salad to go with something flavorsome.

How about adding some carbs to make it a lunch (or a lunch-box meal)? couscous or pasta....?

One of the tastiest veg dishes I have had in recent months. I used rapeseed oil and 15 minutes into cooking added halved cherry tomatoes and topped with extra virgin olive oil at the end. Lovely! :)

Very simple recipes but a lovely combination of ingrediants. I also sprinkled over a few pine nuts.

This was very lovely and delicious. I added some roasted pine nuts which made it even better I think.
