Aubergines seem to divide - you either like them, or your don't. For many, its the latter! But this recipe is so tasty, and a great addition to lamb steaks.You will need: for 2-3 servings2 aubergines1 tin chopped tomatoes2 garlic cloves, chopped1 ball mozzarella2 tablespoons olive oilTomato pureeParmesanBasil leaves1 eggTo start, in a small pan warm the olive oil and garlic on a medium heat for a few minutes. Then stir in the tomatoes and tomato puree and leave on a low heat to cook while you do the rest of the prep.Slice the aubergines into 5mm thick slices, brush a few of the slices with a little oil and cook in a griddle pan for about 5 minutes - flip half way through. Do in batches, and leave the slices on kitchen roll to absorb some of the oil when done.

Now, time to layer it up! Start with a layer of aubergines, then some of the tomato sauce, mozzarella slices, basil leaves and a sprinkling of grated Parmesan. Repeat until you've used up all the ingredients. Top with a beaten egg and another sprinkling of Parmesan. 

Bake for 20-30 minutes at 180C until golden. Some say this is a dish on its own - its not enough food for me on its own, so I usually serve with lamb steaks and vegetables. Enjoy!
