Slice baby aubergine in half leaving the stem on.  If you can't find small aubergine, use 2 large sliced into rings.

Add salt to open side and place facedown on grill pan or in colander to let drain for 30 minutes, water will be drawn out of the aubergine.

After half hour rinse the salt off and pat completely dry.

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.
