Aubergine roasted in Tomato Sauce
This is loosely based on a Turkish dish I recently learned how to make. It's tomatoy aubergines with rice.
Diced into large cubes 1.5cm
cut into 4 then sliced
tomatoes, canned, crushed
tinned chopped tomato
Dice the aubergine into large chunks and put into a baking dish . Douse in olive oil (it soaks up a lot, so be generous) and put into the oven at gas mark 6 for about 15 minutes mixing them up half way.
Meanwhile put some rice on to cook.
While those cook, put the tinned tomatoes and garlic into a pan with another gush of olive oil and some salt. Mix well and let it simmer for 5 minutes.
Once the aubergines are ready, add the onions and tomato sauce and mix together. Return to the oven for another 15 minutes.
Spoon the final mixture onto a pile of rice, and enjoy.
