Aubergines make for perfect serving bowls! I saw Kristine's recipe for these baked aubergines with a lovely filling, topped with SO much mozzarella and I knew I had to make it!
Baked Aubergines with Mozzarella
1 tbsp oil
1 large aubergine, halved lengthways - scrape out the flesh
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 small garlic clove, minced
3-4 mushrooms, finely chopped
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp (smoked) paprika
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Salt and pepper
Aaaaalmost one mozzarella ball (I snacked on the rest, oops!), grated
- Pre-heat the oven to 200C. Set Aubergine bowls aside.
- In a large frying pan, heat up oil and have all the vegetables and seasoning in and fry well until all the liquid has evaporated, and the vegetables are soft and fragrant.
- Fill the aubergine bowls with the vegetables, and top with the mozzarella. Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes until the mozzarella is melted and lightly golden.
...This is easiest to eat with a spoon. I didn't eat the aubergine bowl itself - because I am a little finicky (Scottish slang for fickle, I believe!) when it comes to aubergine. Enjoy the cheeezy mozzarella! If you want, you can serve a side of fries with this, or maybe sweet potato mash? I just had it on its own, and it hit the spot *smiles*
