Roast eggplant with a feta cheese salad & Tzatziki

Method

  • Preheat oven to 190°C fan forced (210°C normal).
  • Cut the eggplant slices in a diamond pattern using a sharp knife. Then generously spray with oil, season and cook in the oven until tender.
  • Toss the onion with the juice of ½ lemon and the oregano using your hands. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, toss the tomatoes, sugar and a little salt, and also set aside.
  • To make the Tzatziki, combine the cucumber and cayenne with the remaining lemon juice, the yoghurt and garlic.
  • Then toss the onion and tomato mixtures with the fennel, feta, a good slurp of oil, seasonings and the olives.
  • To serve, place an eggplant slice on each plate and top with a good mound of the salad, a dollop of Tzatziki and a garnish of the fennel fronds.
