Preheat the oven to 230C.

Cut the aubergines in half lengthways and score the flesh in a criss-­cross pattern.

Drizzle the aubergines liberally with the olive oil, opening the scores of the flesh for the oil to drizzle into.

Remove from the oven and set aside until cooled.

Once cooled slice into chunks.

While to aubergine roasts, make the hummus by placing all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until smooth.

Warm the tortillas in a pan until heated through.

Spread thickly with the hummus and place some aubergine chunks on top.
