Baby aubergines are marinated in Asian flavours, then oven-roasted until tender and succulent.

Ingredients

Aubergine

700 g, baby aubergines, halved lengthways

Sesame Oil

2 teaspoons

Blue Dragon Mirin

1 tablespoons

Groovy Food Co. Agave Nectar Light Amber & Mild

1 tablespoons

Soy Sauce

2 tablespoons

Smooth Peanut Butter

1 teaspoons

Chilli flakes

½ teaspoons, level

Tesco Thai Fragrant Rice

240 g

Peas, fresh or frozen

150 g

Lime Juice, Fresh

20 ml

Coriander, fresh

1 tablespoons, roughly chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas mark 6. Put the aubergines in a large roasting tray. In a small bowl, whisk together the sesame oil, mirin, agave nectar, soy sauce, peanut butter and chilli flakes. Pour the marinade over the aubergines and stir well to ensure they are well covered. Roast in the oven for 35-40 minutes, or until tender and sticky.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the rice according to pack instructions. Bring another pan of water to the boil and cook the peas for 3-4 minutes, then drain. Add the peas to the cooked rice, squeeze in the lime juice, season and stir through the fresh coriander, then serve with the roasted aubergines.

Notes

If you can’t find baby aubergines, use larger ones. Cut them into quarters lengthwise, then cut each piece in half.
