Method

 
Preheat oven to 220° C.

Slice the aubergine about 1/2 cm thick.

In a large bowl, mix the cumin, honey, salt and pepper and about 2 T vegetable oil together.

Toss the aubergine slices into the mixture and make sure they are all coated.

Lay them out on a baking tray and place in the oven for about 10-15 minutes or until just starting to brown.

Cut the broccoli florets into flat trees (the same thickness as the aubergine).

Great the garlic and peel and grate the ginger on the small (not smallest) eye of the grater.

Toss the broccoli in a pan with a little vegetable oil and the ginger and garlic, season well until just done.

Skin and dice the plum into small blocks.

Lay the aubergines and the broccoli onto a platter and crumble over the goats cheese.

Garnish with the diced plum.

Tip of the day

 
Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
