    Roasted aubergine and tahini salad

    This unusual salad is best warm, but the vegetables can be roasted in advance – just pop the dish in the oven to heat through before serving.

    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 50 minutes

    Serves: 8


    700g aubergines (about 2 large aubergines)
    9-12 small onions, peeled
    5 tbsp olive oil
    3 red peppers, deseeded and cut into chunks
    75g Waitrose Cooks' Ingredients Tahini
    Finely grated zest and juice of 1 unwaxed lemon
    2 cloves garlic, crushed
    ½ 25g pack flat-leaf parsley, chopped


    1. Preheat the oven to 220C, gas mark 7. Cut the aubergines into 2cm chunks and scatter in 1 or 2 large roasting tins. Quarter the onions so they remain intact at the root ends and add to the tin. Drizzle with 3 tbsp of the oil and roast for 25 minutes. Stir in the peppers and return to the oven for a further 25 minutes, or until the vegetables are softened and lightly caramelised.
    2. Mix the tahini paste in a bowl with the lemon juice, garlic and a little seasoning. Stir in about 3 tbsp water to give a smooth, creamy consistency.
    3. Transfer the vegetables to a serving platter and drizzle with the remaining oil. Spoon the dressing over the top. Scatter with the parsley and lemon zest to serve.
