Although I've eaten aubergine many times, I've never actually cooked it so I thought I'd give it a go and try something simple to begin with. So I decided to make stuffed Aubergine.
1 Medium to large Aubergine
1 small onion sliced
1 tomato chopped
1 tsp Ginger ,garlic and Green chili paste
salt and pepper to taste
pinch of cayenne pepper
Grated cheese as needed
Drizzle of olive oil.
Pre heat the oven to 180 or 375
Prepare the Aubergine.
Was the Aubergine and cut off the tip.
Now cut the Aubergine length ways and spoon out the flesh and leave to the side to use later.
Now Chop up the Aubergine flesh and put it in large bowl.
Add in the tomato ,onion, seasoning and Garlic paste.
Drizzle a little olive oil into it and give it a stir to mix well.
Now fill the Aubergine Shells with the filling and top them with the grated cheese.
Place them on a baking tray and cook in the oven for 25 minutes until the Aubergine is softened and the cheese is bubbling and melted.

We ate our stuffed Aubergine with a Quorn lemon and black pepper escalope and sweetcorn. It was delicious.
