Blackened Aubergine, Tahini & Pomegranate Oatcakes

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 box Walkers Scottish Biscuits for Cheese
  • 2 large aubergine
  • 3 tbsp. tahini paste
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 3 tbsp. chopped parsley
  • sea salt and black pepper
  • 4 cm cucumber, deseeded and finely chopped
  • seeds from 1 pomegranate
  • 12 small sage leaves

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the grill. Wash the aubergines and place them under a hot grill, turning frequently for around 15 minutes, until blackened and charred on either side.
  • Once cool enough to handle, cut the aubergines length-ways and scoop out the flesh with a spoon, chopping it. Place the flesh in a colander to drain away the bitter juice. 

  • Add tahini, lemon juice, garlic, parsley, and some salt and pepper. Mix well.

  • Stir in the cucumber, keeping a tablespoon back for garnish.  Spoon onto the oatcakes and sprinkle with the remaining cucumber and pomegranate seeds.
