I really enjoy experimenting with flavours and the food we have in our kitchen. Sometime it works really well and other times we just need to smile and pretend we love it. A few weeks ago we decided to have a braai and I think popping an aubergine in some foil with some basil and feta is definitely a winner.
Here’s how I made it – all the ingredients are an estimate, I used what looked like enough.
Slice one medium sized aubergine into rings. Sprinkle some salt on it and let it rest for a couple of minutes, (this makes it less bitter)
Place the rings on some tin foil and spread some tomato puree on each ring, add some basil leaves and sprinkle some feta on it. You can go mad with the basil and feta – there’s no such thing as too much.
Wrap the foil around it and pop on the braai for about 15 – 25 minutes or until soft and yummy.
