Ingredients

  • 1 small aubergine , cut into cubes
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lemon , juiced
  • ½ tsp cardamom seeds (without pods)
  • ¼ tsp chilli flakes
  • ¼ tsp cumin
  • 90g kale or spring greens
  • 250g pouch black rice (we used Gallo)
  • 2 medium eggs , soft-boiled for 6 mins
  • 30g Greek yogurt
  • ½ small pack parsley , leaves picked

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/ gas 4. Put the aubergine in a roasting tin, toss in 1/2 the olive oil and 1/2 the lemon juice. Cook for 35-40 mins until softened.

  • STEP 2

    When the aubergines are cooked through, tip the cardamom seeds into a frying pan, toast a little, then add the remaining olive oil and toast the spices. Add the kale and allow to wilt for 5-6 mins. Add the rice (with 100ml water if the pack instructs) and cook for 2 mins. Add the aubergine and give a good stir to combine everything. Season and add more lemon juice if necessary.

  • STEP 3

    To serve, peel the boiled eggs and slice in half. Divide the rice between two bowls, add half the yogurt to each, then top with an egg and the parsley.
