Aubergines stuffed with bread and tomatoes

By Anna Del Conte

Serves 4 | Prep 10 mins plus draining | Cook 1 hr | Calories 290 (per serving)

4 aubergines sea salt vegetable oil, to fry

2 shallots, finely chopped

4 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

225g (8oz) tinned plum tomatoes

1 slice of white sourdough bread, about 40g (1½oz)

1-2 garlic cloves, chopped

1 tbsp chopped flat-leaf parsley a small pinch of chilli flakes

1 tbsp dried breadcrumbs

1 Remove the ends of the aubergines and cut them in half lengthwise. (You can keep these on for the look of the dish or use the smaller bits for a ratatouille or a frittata.) Sprinkle the cut sides with salt and leave them to drain, cut side down, on a wooden board for about 1 hour. When the time is up, dry them thoroughly with kitchen paper.

2 Pour enough vegetable oil into a frying pan to come about 2cm (¾in) up the pan side. Heat the oil and, when hot, slide in the aubergine halves, skin side down. Fry for 5 minutes and then turn the halves over and fry for about 2-3 minutes until the flesh begins to become golden. Lift the halves out with a fish slice and place them on kitchen paper, cut side down.

3 Preheat the oven to 200°C/Gas Mark 6.

4 Now prepare the stuffing. Gently sauté the shallot with a pinch of salt in 1½ tbsp olive oil for about 5 minutes. While the shallot is frying, scoop out the flesh from the aubergine halves, leaving about 1.5cm (½in) of flesh all the way round. Chop the flesh, add to the pan and sauté for 5 minutes, mixing frequently. Lift the tomatoes out of their juice, roughly chop them and add to the pan. Continue cooking for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
