Veggie Week!

National Vegetarian Week started yesterday and I will be doing my best to avoid meat this week.  I tend to stick to a vegetarian diet mid-week anyway (although with some fish) and then have good quality (preferably organic and/or locally sourced) meat at some point over the weekend.  So tonight was a perfect opportunity to make a delicious veggie dish, and join in this month's Cookalong on nigella.com at the same time.  The recipe for Griddled Aubergines with Feta, Mint and Chilli is just my kind of dish as I love all of the individual ingredients, and it was so easy to put together. Pefect to make at a barbeque or for a picnic, especially for any vegetarian guests, and just as good for a light supper when you get in late from work (as I usually do!). Yum!


  1. Yum, I'm salivating. Love veggie food (I was veggie for 18 years and vegan for 2!) and will give those involtini a go at some point this week.

  2. Looks fantastic - I can never get the griddled effect as pronounced as you have.

  3. Mmmmmmmmmmm, looks very tasty :)

  4. Goodness me these look soooo good. I am trying to eat less meat so I will try these out. Lucie x

  5. I'm still a bit iffy about aubergines, but if I was going to eat them, this sounds like a good way to do it.

  6. Emmalene - I was also veggie for years and am sometimes quite tempted to be again as I love vegetarian food so much.

    BVG - the griddled effect needs a little bit of nerve and not moving them too early, and also a nifty quarter turn of the slices!

    Thank you Jacqueline!

    Thank you Lucie - do try them, they are yummy!

    Choclette - I'm pretty sure these would convert you. :D
