Smoked aubergine purée


Aubergine Sauce

Delicious served with bread or as a sauce!

Ingredients

  • 2 medium aubergines
  • juice 1 lemon
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 150ml pot thick yogurt
  • small bunch dill, leaves chopped

Method

  1. Heat grill to very hot. Slice the aubergines in half lengthways, then grill for 25 mins, turning occasionally, until soft – the skin will remain firm, but the flesh will soften. Lift the aubergines off the grill and leave until cool enough to handle.
  2. Using a sharp knife, score the grilled flesh and scoop out the flesh with a spoon. Tip into a bowl and mash with a fork until you get a thick pulp. Beat in the lemon juice and garlic. Add the yogurt and dill, and season. Serve while still warm.
