Why I Love This Recipe

I am currently working through my old hard copy recipe book and have got to this one. My local greengrocers have cheap aubergines at the moment, so this recipe made sense. My memories of this recipe was that it was bland, however I don't find it so now. No idea where it came from. I have altered the recipe a bit as it originally had cream not milk and parsnips instead of 1 of the carrots. I forgot the lemon juice, however I tasted it prior to serving and it tasted just fine.

If you want to adjust this for slimming world or weight watchers, just use low fat oil spray instead of the oil and that will do fine. If you want to go more special, use cream instead of milk
