Recipe Ingredients for Cardamom Aubergine

2 eggplant
1 tsp cardamom
5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
10 g flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped

Recipe Directions for Cardamom Aubergine

  1. Prepare and light the barbecue or preheat the grill to medium. Using a sharp knife, remove the aubergines' leafy tops and cut lengthways into 3-5mm slices. Set aside. Using a pestle and mortar, lightly crush the cardamom pods. Remove and discard the green outer husks, leaving only the black seeds behind (it should produce -1 tsp). Crush these lightly.

  2. In a large bowl, mix the olive oil, lemon juice and almost all of the chopped parsley together. Add the prepared cardamom seeds, season and mix together well. Now add the aubergine slices and toss in the dressing until evenly coated.

  3. Cook the aubergine slices in batches on the barbecue or under the grill for 3 minutes on each side, or until just tender.

  4. Serve as a salad topping, or with cream cheese on toast as a simple bruschetta.
