Tomato and Oregano Roasted Aubergine This dish is wonderful – it goes with everything. Have it with pasta and grated cheese*, or with jacket potatoes (as pictured). You could also spread it over pitta bread, cover with cheese* and grill to make a quick pizza. The possibilities are endless. Serves: 2–3 Vegan (*with substitutions)
