In this recipe, aubergines are roasted in the oven with garlic and olive oil until slightly charred and golden brown. They are super simple, but super delicious - they are are a great alternative to mashed potatoes and they taste wonderful with grilled chicken.
- 2 large aubergines
- 4 tbsp. olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves
- Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 220C. Thinly slice garlic cloves. Slice the aubergines in half lengthways and make slits in the flesh with a sharp knife. Add garlic slivers to the slits.
Drizzle with oil and salt and pepper. Bake for 30 minutes, covering with foil halfway through to prevent them from browning too much.
