Instructions

1 Roast eggplants

Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan. Slice the eggplants into 1 cm thick rounds. Add the eggplant rounds to a baking tray and drizzle generously with olive oil and season with salt. Give everything a good mix up so that the eggplants are fully coated in olive oil. Roast the eggplants in the oven for 20-25 min.

2 Prep

Meanwhile, finely chop the chives. Peel and crush the garlic. Grate the Parmesan. Peel and dice the shallots. Boil the measured water and dissolve the vegetable stock cube and tomato paste in it.

3 Make sauce

Heat a large non-stick pan over a medium heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Once hot, add the shallots and oregano and fry for 3 min until softened. Add the red vinegar, tomato stock, tomato passata and honey and simmer for 10 min.

4 Prep crumb and butter

Meanwhile, mash the butter with the crushed garlic and chopped chives. In a separate bowl, combine the panko bread crumbs with the grated Parmesan, a drizzle of olive oil and a grind of black pepper. Set aside.

5 Layer parmigiana

Layer half of the eggplants over the base of a baking dish, pour half of the tomato sauce over and top with half of the grated mozzarella. Repeat this process. Top the final layer of mozzarella with the Parmesan and panko crumb. Bake in the oven for 25 min.

6 Make garlic bread

Meanwhile, place the sourdough slices on a baking tray and spread each slice with garlic butter. Place the tray in the oven and bake for 5 min. When ready, garnish the Aubergine Parmigiana with basil leaves and serve the garlic bread to the side.

Tips for fussy eaters

Don't add the chives to the garlic butter!

Pro tip

Don't rush the aubergines during the initial round of baking and don't skimp on the olive oil either!
