Ingredients
  • 2 large aubergines
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 large tomato
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1 stick celery, chopped
  • 1 small red pepper, de-seeded and chopped
  • Pinch of cayenne (optional)
  • 50g gluten-free bread, made into crumbs
  • 50g walnuts, chopped
  • 125g Stilton, crumbled
  • Parsley leaves, to garnish
Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. Slice the aubergines in half. Make cuts in the flesh, taking care not to cut the skin. Put on a baking tray, cut-side up, and brush with half the oil. Bake for 15 minutes. Scoop out the flesh and roughly chop. Put on a plate lined with kitchen paper to soak up moisture.

  • Quarter the tomato. De-seed and chop the flesh.

  • Fry the onion and celery in the remaining oil until soft. Add the pepper and tomato and cook for another 3-4 minutes. Add the cayenne.

  • Tip into a bowl and add the chopped aubergine, breadcrumbs, walnuts and Stilton. Pile into the aubergine cases, pushing down gently. Bake for 30 minutes. Garnish with parsley to serve.
