1 Roast eggplant
Chop the eggplant into small, bite-sized pieces. Heat a pan over a medium high heat with a generous drizzle of oil. Once hot, add the eggplant and a pinch of salt. Fry for 10-12 min until the eggplant is golden and cooked through.
2 Cook spaghetti
Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Once boiling, add the spaghetti and cook for 8-10 min until 'al dente' or cooked to your liking. Drain.
3 Make romesco
Meanwhile, peel and mince the garlic. Add the roasted peppers, sun dried tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, cashew nuts, almonds, red vinegar, crumbled stock cube and a pinch of chipotle (spicy!) to a food processor. Blend until smooth (add a splash of water if needed). 
4 Serve
Toss the cooked spaghetti in the romesco sauce. Top with the eggplant and fresh basil leaves.
Tips for fussy eaters
This one's easy to love. Swap the eggplants for beans or chicken!
Pro tip
Sprinkle the eggplant cubes with salt and allow them to rest for 20 min in a colander before frying - this will remove excess moisture!
