Here’s a fantastic low-fat, healthy recipe my sister gave me a couple of weeks ago. I adore aubergines, so this is a new favourite of mine :-)
Turkey and Aubergine Rolls - serves 4
2 large aubergines trimmed and thinly sliced lengthways
4tbsp olive oil
450g/1lb turkey mince
1 red onion finely chopped
4tbsp fresh breadcrumbs
2tsp ground coriander
1tsp ground cumin
Salt and pepper
2 tbsp olive oil
1 red onion, chopped
2 x 400g/14oz cans chopped tomatoes
2tbsp tomato puree
Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6. Brush two baking sheets with a little olive oil and spread out the aubergine slices on them. Brush the slices with the rest of the oil and bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden.
For the filling, mix the turkey mince, onion, breadcrumbs, coriander, cumin and seasoning in a large bowl.
For the sauce, heat the oil in a pan, add the onion and fry for 5 minutes. Sprinkle in the paprika, cook for one minute, add the tomatoes and puree and simmer for ten minutes.
Spoon a thin layer of the tomato sauce over the base of a large shallow ovenproof dish or roasting tin. Take one aubergine slice, spoon a little filling at one end and roll up. Place in the dish with the end of the aubergine slice tucked underneath. Repeat with the remaining aubergine slices and filling, placing the rolls close together so they do not unroll.
Spoon over the remaining sauce, lower the oven temperature to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4 and cover the dish with foil. Bake for 30 minutes and serve hot with vegetables.
