We tend to eat a healthy amount of aubergine {or eggplant} at home. I grew up with Indian food at least four days a week, not the kind you’re imagining. Mostly vegetarian, lots of greens and lentils. I quite fondly remember one dish with little, tiny aubergines stuffed with a spiced mixture of coconut, peanuts, chickpea flour and lots of fresh coriander. Slowly baked all afternoon and its aroma perfumed the entire house. Aubergines, since then, have always taken me back to the kitchen where my grandmother and mother shared tasks and brought piping hot food to the table.I’m in the midst of learning to make those dishes that I was brought up with since I want my children to have an equally indulgent experience. As I roasted the aubergine for this particular recipe, the organic and sweet smell of the aubergine slices and the accompanying olive oil had transported me back to that moment where I stood on the step stool next to my grandmother who stood over the kitchen counter arranging the baking dish. And so, I share a modern-translated {and slightly Italian} aubergine dish.
