Roasted Aubergine Spread

  • 2 medium aubergines, peeled
  • 1 red pepper, seeded
  • 1 red onion, peeled
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons good olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 3 tablespoons chopped parsley, plus extra for garnish
Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6.
Cut the aubergine, bell pepper, and onion into 1 inch cubes. Toss them in a large bowl with the garlic, olive oil, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper. Spread them on a baking sheet. Roast for 45 minutes, until the vegetables are lightly browned and soft, tossing once during cooking. Cool slightly.
Place the vegetables in a food processor fitted with a steel blade, add the lemon juice and tahini, and pulse 3 or 4 times to blend. Taste for salt and pepper. Transfer to a bowl and add the chopped parsley. Garnish with extra parsley.
