Cooking instructions

For the roasted aubergine

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 240 degrees Celsius. 
  2. Whilst the oven is pre-heating, chop all the herbs and mix in with olive oil and lemon juice. 
  3. Pierce the aubergine with a folk and place onto a baking tray and into the oven. 
  4. Cook in the oven for 20 mins, rotating the aubergine every 5 minutes so it is charred all over. 
  5. Once charred all over, remove from the oven, place into a bowl.
  6. Cover the bowl with clingfilm, keeping the heat in the bowl will allow the aubergine to heat itself.
  7. After 20 minutes, remove cautiously from the bowl (It may still be hot) and cut into chunks.
  8. Mix the chunks in with the herbs & olive oil, and add a pinch of salt and pepper and allow to cool.
