TWC 08 Recipe 1 Aubergine hero 5037821a 7dba 4425 8636 aca3d3059a73 0 472x310

Cook aubergines on the barbecue until the skin is burnt and the flesh is soft. Set aside until they are cool enough to handle. Scoop out the flesh into a large bowl and discard the skin. If there are any aubergine juices left in the bowl, pass them through a sieve and add to the aubergine pulp. This liquid will give an extra hint of smokiness to the aubergine.

Preheat the oven to Gas 4, 180°C, fan160°C. Toast the walnuts in the oven for about 10 minutes, then chop them roughly.

Mix the shallot, spring onions, coriander, garlic, olive oil and lemon juice together in a salad bowl. Add the aubergine, using a fork to break it up, then add the walnuts. Season to taste.
