  • Preparation time: 5 minutes
  • Cooking time: 1 hour
  • Total time: 1 hour 5 minutes

Serves: 6


4 medium aubergines
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
150g soft mild goats' cheese
pinch sumac 


1. Preheat the oven to 190˚C, gas mark 5, and put a baking sheet in to heat up. Prick the aubergines a few times with a skewer and lay them on the baking sheet. Roast for 45-60 minutes, until tender right through.

2. Split each aubergine down the middle so that it opens out. Season the insides, drizzle with the oil, then spoon some of the goats’ cheese on top. Drizzle over a little more oil, sprinkle with sumac and serve immediately.
