One of my favourite vegetables right now is the aubergine (or eggplant) and there is usually always an abundance of them available at the supermarkets. This vegan aubergine curry takes about 30 minutes to make and only requires one aubergine and is full of herbs and spices, so why not give this vegan recipe a go.
Here's the ingredients (serves 2)
100g of cous cous or quinoa
1 aubergine chopped into small pieces
1 tbsp coconut oil (or any oil will do)
1 finely chopped spring onion
