What you'll need

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 aubergines, halved lengthways
  • 4 tomatoes
  • Handful of basil leaves
  • 150g blue cheese or strong cheddar

Time: 30 mins

Serves: 4


Method

First

Preheat your oven to 200C. Drizzle some oil over your aubergine halves, season well with salt and pepper, and roast in the oven for 25 minutes until softened.

Second

While your aubergines are cooking, slice the tomatoes and cheese. Remove the aubergines after 25 minutes, place the tomatoes, cheese, and basil leaves on the cut side, and stick back in the heat for 5 more minutes. Serve hot with couscous and share with your mates.

Wine Match

For the perfect wine pairing, crack open a bottle of the dark-fruited Hither & Yon Nero d'Avola 2017 from the McLaren Vale. These two should be a winning combo!
