Aubergine puree with mint & almonds
From central Anatolia Nazuktan is a sweet & sour, crunchy dish made from the soft, smoky pulp of charcoal-grilled aubergines, toasted almpnds, honey & fresh mint.  It is delicious served on its own with bread, or as part of a meze spread
Serves 2-3
2 aubs (you can multiply up)
3 tbsp thick creamy yoghurt
juice half lemon
2-3 cloves garlic crushed with salt
1 tsp honey
2-3 tbsps toasted almonds roughly chopped
small bunch fresh mint roughly chopped (I use dried)
salt & black pepper
To garnish
A few whole almonds, fresh mint leaves

Place the whole aub over a charcoal grill or hold directly over a high gas flame  (I do them on the bbq) turning till they become soft & skin blackened.  Slit open, scoop flesh out
Chop to a pulp (eg in food processor)  add other ingredients mix & season & garnish  :D

another recipe and its simple and freezes as well make up a basic tomato sauce with plenty of olive oil in it then just fry the aubergines in olive oil and simmer them in the sauce till soft , best eaten slightly cooled with big crusty bread , pour extra oil over before serving .

Below is a Wikipedia link to a Turkish/Greek dish that I have made using Aubs

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baba_ghanoush

I have experimented with freezing and have found that if you add about 10% more oil than the recipe says it works well, also try and get most of the water out of the aub if it is old.

Here is a link to one (of the hundreds) recipe for it.

Turkey Jane,  I have made the aubergine puree..... it is lovely.... well I think so, hubby just tasted a little and pulled a face :lol:   all the more for me to eat :lol:  :lol:
I´ve frozen 2 lots and have a dish ready to take down to the neighbours- they probably won´t like it either, it´s not fried in tons of oil!!
Thanks for the recipe
Pamela
