Ingredients
  • 4 large aubergines
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 500g pack Asda Lamb Mince
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 level tbsp flour
  • 1 level tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 level tsp dried oregano
  • 1 lamb stock cube dissolved in 150ml hot water
  • 3 tbsp tomato purée
  • 75g Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 50g fresh white breadcrumbs
Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. Cut the aubergines in half and brush with oil. Bake, cut side up, for 10 minutes. Scoop out the flesh, leaving a ½ cm shell. Chop the flesh.

  • Fry the onion in the rest of the oil until soft. Add the lamb and aubergine flesh and cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the garlic and cook for another minute. Drain off excess fat.

  • Stir in the flour, cinnamon and oregano. Add the stock and tomato purée, cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Add water if needed to prevent it from dying out.

  • Divide between the aubergine shells. Mix the cheese and breadcrumbs together and sprinkle on top. Bake for 15 minutes and serve with salad.
