I made this dish using a recipe which is no longer online. It required one eggplant, a couple of tomatoes, a few potatoes, an onion, 1 red chilli, 1 clove of garlic, 1 teaspoon paprika powder, 1 sweet red pepper, olive oil, salt, and fresh parsley, basil and sage.

I thought I loved garlic. This recipe, which calls for one bulb of garlic per aubergine/eggplant is just a bit much for me to eat plain, but it is nice spread on some bread. I didn’t have Asian aubergines so I used another variety.
I was inspired by this recipe, but modified it. As I do not have a ridged griddle pan, I grilled the aubergine/eggplant in the oven. I used cherry tomatoes and Asian aubergines which I seasoned with marjoram before grilling.
I used this recipe, but baked the ingredients on a grill in my oven.
I was eating Cashel blue cheese and thinking about the vegetables I needed to use, one of which was aubergine/eggplant. I decided to make something similar to mutabal, where yoghurt is added to roast aubergine to make it creamy.
To make this I roasted one aubergine. In a small grinder I blended one clove of raw garlic, some olive oil, a tablespoon of lemon juice, salt and a hunk of Cashel blue. After adding the roast aubergine with its juices and blending I adjusted to taste, adding a bit more cheese and salt. The proportions depend on your preferences and the size of the eggplant.
It was tasty served with black pepper oatcakes.
