Things I have been cooking lately #22: Aubergine “pizza”

My husband is aubergine mad so when I found this recipe that combines the joys of pizza and aubergine without all the bread, I was sold. It’s also a super quick and pretty healthy. Yum!

Aubergine “pizza”

2 large aubergines
1 ball of low fat mozzarella
About half a cup of tomato passata
Pizza toppings of your choice – I used sliced baby tomatoes and olives but the sky’s the limit
Olive oil
Salt
Pepper

Heat the oven to 180 C. Slice the aubergines into 2cm slices. Brush with olive oil and griddle. I did this on the George Foreman grill but you could easily use a griddle pan on the stove top. You want them to be showing grill lines but still firm. Probably a couple of minutes per side, max. But it’s easy to tell then they’re done.

Lay your griddled aubergine slices on a baking tray (I put some baking parchment on mine to stop it from sticking) and spread a couple of tablespoons of passata on each slice. Then top with torn up bits of mozzarella, followed by your toppings. Bake in the oven for 10 – 14 minutes, until the cheese is bubbling. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper and serve.

Serves 2 – 4. Paul and I ate all of this between us but if you are less greedy or serve with a side salad and garlic bread it would go a lot further.
