  • 1 aubergine
  • Vegetable oil
  • Vegetable stock cube (crumbled)

The topping

  • 5 closed chestnut mushrooms (very finely diced)
  • 1/3 courgette (very finely diced)
  • 1 red chilli (finely chopped)
  • 1 vegetable stock cube
  • Mixed herbs

To serve

  • Fresh coriander
  • 1/2 avocado
  • A squeeze of lime juice
  • 50g couscous


  1. Cut the aubergine in half and cross cross the flesh. Place on baking tray and cover with 1 tsp vegetable oil. Sprinkle the crumbled stock cube over the top. Cover with foil and bake for 30 mins. Remove foil and bake for extra 10 mins.

  2. Chop up the mushrooms, courgettes and chilli. Dry fry on a medium heat until browned. Add the other stock cube (crumbled), the mixed herbs, lots of black pepper and a pinch of salt. Be careful not to burn this should only take 5-10 mins.
