The only thing I ever use them for is ratatouille and I'm looking for something a bit more interesting.

A variation on the parmigiana- if you don't care about calories....
Fry the aubergine slices (quite thickly sliced) in an egg batter mixture first....
T'is gorge.

I loved these, made at school 'Greek Stuffed Aubeigines'
1 med Aubeigine
1/2 tbsp corn or sumflower oil
1 tbsp water
1/2 onion chopped
1 clove garlic crushed
1/2 tsp ground cumin/curry powder
3oz cooked meat or fish (we used bacon)
2oz brown rice cooked
1 egg beaten
1/2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1/4 tsp salt
ground black pepper
1/2 oz flaked almonds
1oz cheese

Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Half aubergines lengthways, scoop out flesh leaving the shells intact. Blanch or steam shells for two mins, drain. Chop aubergine flesh and cook with oil, water, onion and garlic for five min. Add cumin or curry powder and cook for a further one min. Mix in meat or fish, rice,egg,parsley and seasoning and pile into aubergine shells. Put on a nonstick or greased baking tray, cover with foil and bake for thirty mins. Remove foil sprinkle with almonds and cheese and continue to cook for a further fifteen mins.

I think we've got that Ottolenghi book somewhere so will look at that.

Mmmmmm - the others look tasty too so will give them a try at some point as well. Thanks.

Mine is a variant on hummus, tho instead of chickpeas you use roasted aubs.

2 Aubergines,
1 clove garlic chopped,
juice 1 lemon
olive oil.

Bake aubs at 200 in oven 45 mins, then peel off their skins and put the mush into a food processor. Add garlic, lemon and olive oil. Whizz up in foodpro.

It's called Muttabel in Saudi Arabia and I used to eat it a lot there after my midday swim with bread and salad.

Today I've cubed aubergine, peppers and cut up chunks of onion. Good squeeze of lemon and mixed it up in olive oil and thyme (its what we had in!) roasted in oven at 200C for about 20mins (just to where it was starting to catch). Then have put in fridge and called it aubergine and pepper salad.

We are having it with tabouleh and cold sausages.

I cook 2 whole aubergines (slash skins first)for c 20 minutes in the oven so they´re basically cooked through. Then I slice them and fry off in a (hopefully griddle) pan till properly cooked through.

Mix a small pot plain yoghurt in a bowl with fresh chopped mint and crushed garlic.

Put aubergines on serving dish, dribble over yoghurt mixture and serve with nice bread for lunch or as side salad for BBQs etc.
