Stripy Aubergine Recipe.

We've been trying different ways to eat all our lovely big aubergines. The way Ive found we like them at the moment as the weather is so hot we BBQ them.
I also have a good griddle pan which I use for them often

So simple...
Mix together, juice of a squeezed lemon, sprinkling of salt, plenty of good olive oil, and a good teaspoon of lazy garlic (lazy garlic is the crushed stuff that comes in a jar)
Then cut up your aubergines into good thick slices. brush with the marinade on both sides and grill till all nice and stripy.... mmmm yum
I add different herbs too... Rosemary worked very well instead of garlic...
As did sage....
