Aubergine, Quinoa, Feta And Fresh Herbs
Quinoa is a great ingredient to use instead of couscous and pasta and is lovely in this Mediterranean style dish. It is low in FODMAPs (Fermantable Oligo-saccharides Di-saccharides Mono-saccharides and Polyols) and should be tolerated by most people with IBS.
- 2 aubergines
- cooking salt
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 200g quinoa
- 2 tbsp pine nuts
- 80g cherry tomatoes, chopped
- 1 tbsp chopped chives
- 1 tbsp chopped parsley
- 150g feta cheese, crumbled
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to garnish
Preheat oven to 200°C/Gas mark 6. Cut the aubergines lengthways into 1.5cm thick strips and lay on a baking tray. Sprinkle with salt and leave for 15 minutes.
Rinse the aubergine slices well under cold water and pat dry. Lightly oil a couple of large baking trays and then lay the aubergine slices in rows. Dribble with a little olive oil and place in the oven to cook until tender for about 15 minutes.
Meanwhile place the quinoa in a pan with twice the volume of water and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer
the quinoa for 8 minutes or until just tender. Drain the quinoa and place in a bowl with the remaining ingredients. Season well.
When the aubergine slices are tender and beginning to turn golden brown remove from the oven and spread a tablespoon of quinoa mixture on the top of each aubergine slice.
Return the aubergine slices to the oven and cook for a further 10 minutes. Serve the aubergine hot from the oven.
