I decided to make baba ganoush. I'd never eaten it before so I could class it as new food of the week. I used this recipe from Aine Carlin (also reproduced in the book Keep It Vegan). I got cold feet part way through, when I scraped the flesh into a bowl, it all looked a bit too much like bits of fish so I cheated and stuck it all in the food processor rather than mashing by hand s I didn't have to look at it.
For a nice looking picture see the link above, I haven't drizzled with oil or anything, it's just a bowl of smoky gloop. Despite my initial doubts it's actually delicious! Full of flavour and the texture is very pleasant.
A nice lunch, home made houmous (the larger and lighter of the two gloop piles), the aubergine next to it, a bit of salad and a Dan-made pitta!
The holiday is over today, Dan has just cycled off into the distance and I have a nice long to-do list, happy times.
