Baked Creamy Citrus Aubergine

Grilled cheese, a creamy zesty topping and smooth baked aubergine…I really don’t know what more you could want!!

Roasted or baked aubergine is amazing and I’m a big fan. If you haven’t tried my Roast Aubergine, Feta & Toasted Seed Salad then that is a must too!

If you have any leftover, make sure to add it to your lunchbox for round 2 as the flavour infuses even more the next day!

Serve alongside some fresh mixed salad or my Fennel & Carrot Citrus Slaw recipe.

Serves 6, 1 aubergine half each.

  • 3 aubergines, cut in half lengthways
  • 6 tbsp oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 250g mozzarella (chopped), creme fraiche or mascarpone
  • 2 egg yolks
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tbsp chilli pepper or cayenne pepper
  • 100g breadcrumbs, oats or leftover blitzed up brown bread
  1. Crosshatch the flesh of each aubergine half and spread 1 tablespoonful of oil onto each.
  2. Place the aubergines flesh side up on a roasting tin and bake in the oven at 200°C/180°C fan/400°F for 40 minutes.
  3. Whisk the mozzarella, egg yolks, orange zest and spices together in a small mixing bowl.
  4. Spread this creamy spicy mix over the flesh of each baked aubergine. Sprinkle with the breadcrumbs and a drizzle of oil before returning to the oven for 20 minutes or until golden on top.
