  1. Light the barbecue at least 40 mins before cooking. It’s ready when the large flames have died down, and the coals are white and ashy. Put the aubergines into a large mixing bowl with 1 crushed garlic clove and the olive oil. Season and toss together. Put the aubergine slices on the grill over direct heat and cook for 4-5 mins on each side until well marked and tender throughout.
  2. Meanwhile, put the yogurt, remaining garlic, tahini, lemon zest and juice, 3 tbsp cold water, parsley and dill into a small mixing bowl, season and whisk together until well combined.
  3. Serve the wedges over the yogurt with a scattering of the pomegranate seeds, reduced-fat salad cheese and remaining herbs.

Tip: Heat a griddle pan over a high heat and griddle for 7-8 mins on each side until charred and tender if you don’t have a barbecue.
