My visit to Ottolenghi last weekend has had me furiously flipping through Plenty selecting and prioritising new recipes to try. Hands down number one just had to Aubergines with Buttermilk Sauce especially after the amazing aubergines I had last Sunday.
I love aubergines, but sometimes I find that I have trouble cooking them just right...you know, so that they are soft and not spongey or bitter...anyway, this recipe is simple to follow and totally worth the effort it takes to bash the pomegranate seeds out.
This dish is meant to be served as a starter, but it is so easy to eat as a main course with some...oh I don't know...falafel or couscous...I halved the recipe, seeing as I'm home alone this weekend...but kept the whole clove of garlic in the sauce (good thing I'm sleeping alone...that's all I have to say)! I can't wait to eat the leftovers tomorrow!
