Aubergine & mint bruschetta

Bruschetta with aubergine and mint

Serves 6

  • 2 nice firm aubergines, sliced lengthways about 3mm thick

  • extra virgin olive oil

  • white wine or herb vinegar

  • 2 sprigs fresh flat-leaf parsley, leaves picked and finely sliced

  • 1 small handful fresh mint, leaves picked and finely sliced

  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and very finely sliced

  • sea salt

  • freshly ground black pepper

Heat a griddle pan until nice and hot. Lay your aubergine slices on it side by side and when they are nicely charred on both sides, put them into a bowl. You will probably need to do this in several batches.



While the aubergines are grilling, put 8 tablespoons of olive oil and 3 tablespoons of vinegar, with the parsley, mint and garlic, into another bowl and season with salt and pepper.



When the aubergines are all done, add them to the dressing and mix around, then check the seasoning again and divide on to the bruschetta. Press the topping into the toast so all the lovely flavour gets sucked in!

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
