I absolutely love aubergines and find them a perfect way to incorporate meat-free dishes into my weekly meal plan. My local green grocers sells these baby aubergines which are so cute and perfect for roasting, but if you can't find them just use a regular aubergine and add on a few more minutes to the cooking time.
The flavours in this dish are amazing - the tamarind is so sour and tangy, the honey so sweet and sticky, and the sesame oil adds a lovely savoury note to the dish. It's a perfect low effort dish for a mid week meal, or amazing as part of a bigger spread for a dinner party. Hope you all enjoy as much as me!
