  1. Mix all the marinade ingredients in a small pan. Pull out the mushroom stalks, but don’t peel the caps. Cut the aubergines in long thick slices and score one side of the flesh in a criss-cross fashion. Brush the vegetables with some of the marinade and griddle or barbecue for about 5-10 mins, turning until they soften. Brush once more with the marinade during cooking and again before serving.

I love this to accompany bbq'd meat and I think it gives the aubergines great flavour - whereas sometimes they can be a bit tasteless. I cut the aubergines thinner than recommended and don't score them. This makes them less soggy and more chargrilled.

the peppers and mushrooms tasted great but DO NOT use the marinade on the aubergine - it ruined one of my favourite foods!

Thanks for your question. You can buy a number of brands of brown sauce in the supermarket - it's a sweet savoury sauce, often served with breakfast. We use Heinz HP Brown Sauce or you can make your own using our recipe. http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/homemade-brown-sauce

Great way of adding mushrooms in the diet. Thanks for this quick recipe. I had also read that mushrooms have anti aging benefits http://www.belmarrahealth.com/health-benefits-of-mushrooms/
