Method

Aubergines With Mint is a community recipe submitted by StoupaTart and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Cut the top off the aubergines and cut them lengthways into slices about 5mm thick. Paint them on each side with olive oil and season them.
  • Whisk all the dressing ingredients together with some salt and pepper.
  • Heat a griddle pan until very hot. Cook the aubergines to get a good colour on each side, then turn the heat down so they can cook through.
  • Put the aubergines on a plate and dress, while still hot, with the vinaigrette.
  • These are best if you leave them to soak up the dressing for a few hours, then serve at room temperature.
