Lebanese Aubergine caviar
1 grilled aubergine
2 cloves of garlic
Salt and Pepper
Cut the aubergine in half lengthways, place the two halves on a greased dish or greaseproof paper, season the flesh with salt and pepper and sprinkle with olive oil. Grill for 15-20 minutes on a medium heat until a knife sinks easily into the flesh of the aubergine. To make the caviar, scoop out the flesh with a spoon. Peel and crush the garlic very finely. Mix the two together with a fork and add olive oil a drizzle at a time, as you do to make a mayonnaise.
Season with salt and pepper and drizzle with lemon juice.
