Aubergine Patties


1 medium aubergine
2 red sweet peppers, seeded
1 red onion, peeled
2 cloves of garlic, diced
3 tbsps vegetable oil
1 & 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1 tbsp tomato paste
2 - 3 eggs beaten


1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, 400°F, gas mark 6

2. Cut the aubergine, sweet pepper and onion into 1inch cubes

3. Mix them in a large bowl with the garlic, oil, salt and pepper

4. Spread them on a baking sheet, roast for 45 minutes, until the vegetables are lightly browned and soft, mixing them once during cooking

5. Cool for a minute or two

6. Blitz until mush

7. Place the beaten eggs into a bowl, place the breadcrumbs onto a plate and put the aubergine mixture into another bowl

8. Take a tablespoon and lift out a tablespoon of the aubergine mix then place into the egg and into breadrcumbs

9. Shape into a pattie shape and place onto a plate. Repeat until all the mixture is used. It is now time to fry the patties

10. I used some oil in a small frying pan along with butter, you don't need a big amount but enough oil to cover the frying pan and about 1oz - 2oz of butter

11. When the oil and butter begin to sizzle, carefully add the patties do not add to many to the pan, leave about 1/3 of the pan empty, this will ensure that you have enough space to turn them over without too much crumbling

12. Turn them over and when they are golden brown on both sides transfer out of the pan into a bowl that has some kitchen roll in the bottom of it

13.Repeat until all the patties have been cooked
