Method

 

Oven Temperature 200°C

Halve the aubergines length ways and score the flesh. Sprinkle with salt and leave to stand for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat half the oil in a medium-hot pan. Sauté the onion until soft then add the rest of the vegetables and fry until soft. Set aside in a bowl.

Wipe the salt and liquid off of the aubergine. Heat the remaining oil and cook the aubergine, flesh side down, for 8 to 10 minutes in a covered pan over medium heat. Turn and fry the skin side for 5 minutes.
Scoop the flesh out and mix into the vegetables along with the parsley, and salt and pepper to taste

Fill the aubergines with the mixture. Top with feta. Bake in a preheated oven for 10 minutes. Serve with salad.

Tip of the day

 
Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
