Ingredients

  • 2 large aubergines
  • Plenty of olive oil
  • 125g buckwheat
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • The zest and juice of ½ lemon
  • 1-2 tbsp harissa
  • 2 medium vine tomatoes
  • A handful of chopped fresh flatleaf parsley
  • 150g crumbled goat’s cheese

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan180°C/gas 6. Halve the aubergines lengthways and place on a baking sheet. Drizzle with plenty of olive oil and season well. Roast for 20 minutes until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the buckwheat according to pack instructions. Stir in the extra-virgin olive oil, the zest and juice of the lemon and harissa. Deseed and finely chop the tomatoes and stir into the buckwheat with the parsley and goat’s cheese.
  3. Remove the aubergines from the oven and, once they’ve cooled a little, carefully scoop out the flesh and roughly chop. Stir into the buckwheat mixture and season well. Spoon the mixture back into the aubergine shells and return to the oven for 10-12 minutes. Serve with a green salad.

  1. I love this recipe because I’ve been looking for some tasty vegetarian meals as I’m trying to eat less meat and found this is one I shall definitely make again. I sliced the goats cheese and placed on top of the aubergines rather than inside the mixture and my husband and I each had 2 halves of aubergine.

  2. I love this recipe because all of the ingredients compliment each other incredibly well and it is so quick to do. Aubergine is one of my favourite vegetables and this stuffing just takes it to another level! I added a little grilled halloumi on the side too – heaven!
