Recipe | Sweet and Spicy Marinated Aubergine

I haven’t posted a recipe for a while; I’ve been on holiday, and also generally eating out a lot 😁 but I’m back in the swing of cooking at home and here is my first invention; spicy marinated aubergine.

Its super easy and delicious; smoky, sweet and a bit spicy, its perfect with couscous, salad or as a side dish with a main meal. The marinade also works well on oven baked tofu.

Preparation time: approx 5 mins

Cooking time: 30 mins

Ingredients:

  • 1 aubergine, sliced into 1cm slices lengthways (approx 4 slices)

Marinade:

  • 1tsp smoked paprika
  • 1tsp mixed dried herbs
  • 1tsp harissa paste
  • 1tbsp golden syrup
  • 1tsp soy sauce
  • 1tsp olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped / 0.5tsp pre-chopped garlic

Recipe:

  • Score the aubergine slices on one side – cut into to make shallow cuts, but don’t go all the way through
  • Place the aubergine on a lightly oiled tray

  • In a bowl, mix all of the marinade ingredients until well combined
  • With a pastry brush (or back of a spoon) spread half the marinade on the top of the aubergine slices

  • Cook for 10mins at 200C
  • Turn the slices over, spread the rest of the marinade on this side of the aubergine, and cook again for 10 mins

  • Turn the aubergine slices again to the first side, and finish off by cooking for a final 10 mins

Enjoy 😊
