    What 2 Others have said

    • Easier recipe is: pick aubergines from garden in Provence (!), cook in foil in oven 220 for 40 minutes, allow to cool, mash the whole thing (don't peel) in the food processor with garlic, olive oil, salt and lemon juice (to your taste). Eat with little slices of baguette - delicious and doesn't waste a thing (I have done it without the skins and I can't taste a difference).
