Aubergine with Cashew Pesto

Natasha Corrett says, "This simple but tasty bake takes no effort whatsoever and (although meatless) is a meaty and complete meal, with the cashews adding great protein to this dish."

Serves: 2

Ingredients:

1 aubergine (eggplant), halved lengthways
4 tbsp olive oil
50g (2oz/¹/³ cup) raw cashews
40g (1½oz) coriander (cilantro)
1 garlic clove
50g (2oz) feta, crumbled

Method:

Preheat the oven to 170°C/340°F/gas mark 3½.

Place the aubergine (eggplant) halves cut-side up on a baking tray (cookie sheet), drizzle with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and bake for about 25 minutes, until almost tender.

Meanwhile, whizz the cashews, coriander (cilantro), garlic and remaining olive oil in a blender to a rough paste.

When the aubergine (eggplant) halves are almost tender, coat them with the pesto and return to the oven for a further 10 minutes, until the pesto starts to crisp and brown.
