Roasted Eggplant/Aubergine with Garlic

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.

Goat Cheese and Spinach Flatbread

I made a flatbread from buckwheat and wheat flour, then mixed together two pastes as a base: baba ghanoush and roasted red onion purée. I topped it with spinach, cherry tomatoes and honey chèvre.

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.

Roast Aubergine and Blue Cheese Dip

Posted on

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.

Here’s the recipe. If I were to make this again, I think I’d replace the lemon juice with lime.
