Moist and succulent is exactly what your pecker needs…

Rice mirin lime-flavoured aubergine boats coated with buckwheat groats drizzled with balsamic vinegar and garnished with lashings of parsley and rose petals; Baked Aubergine stuffed with Buckwheat.

This dish will burst your belief that vegan food can’t be super scrumptious.

Make this:

  • When the neighbours got a bbq organised and you need a subtle dish that’ll go with the salad
  • When it’s baking hot outside and you fancy an intimate dinner with your beau/belle on the terrace with fairy lights glittering around
  • When you’ve got the girls over for poker night and want a dish that won’t have you breaking into a sweat – mascara darling!

Baked Aubergine stuffed with Buckwheat was inspired by sunset gazing and al fresco dining on the cobbled streets of Mykonos.

Glossy purple-black bell-shaped aubergine belongs to the nightshade family, meaning they contain alkaloids, high in a nitrogen. Aubergine is high in antioxidants helping protect the body against harmful free radicals. It’s also a good source of manganese, which supports bone density.

Love.
