Cheesy Aubergine Bake

on August 13, 2012

My Cheesy Aubergine bake, is great as an easy lunch, or as a side dish to your evening meal. It is tasty and very very easy.

All you need is an aubergine, an onion, some garlic (I’m using smoked as I love the taste), some cheddar and a bit of margarine to sweat the onions in.

First, slice your onions and place them in a preheated pan to sweat for about 5 minutes. Then add in two cloves of crushed garlic and friy for about a minute.

While the onion is sweating, slice the aubergine into disks (about 1/2cm thick) and layer into a dish.

This is also a good time to grate your cheddar ready for the bake. I used 50g.

Season, and scatter 1/2 of the onions and garlic over the first layer you have made. Now scatter some of the cheddar over this layer.

Repeat this for the next layer. MAke sure the top layer is neat, as once the cheese melts it will be visable.

Place in a preheated oven at 180c for about 25 minutes.

This could be spiced up to go with a nice lamb chop by adding apricots and a pinch of  each ground coriander, cumin, paprika, cinnamon and brown sugar.

Or it could be on the side of one of your two fish portions for the week.

I personally like it with an egg on top (not runny of course) as an easy lunch 🙂
