Ingredients
  • 100g Extra Special Spanish Chorizo, finely chopped
  • 2tbsp Asda Red Pesto
  • 1/2 red onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 50g Asda Nocellara Olives, destoned and sliced
  • 2 medium salad tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 2 aubergines
  • 20g whole hazelnuts, roughly chopped
  • Handful of basil leaves, to garnish
Method
  • Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6.

  • Mix together the chorizo, red pesto, red onion, olives and tomatoes until combined.

  • Halve the aubergines lengthways and score the flesh in a 2mm-deep crisscross pattern. Arrange the halves on a large baking tray, with the cut sides facing up, then spread the chorizo mixture over the top of each one. Bake the aubergines for 30-35 mins until the flesh is tender.
