Last night we didn't eat with the kids for once. They ate salmon and broccoli omelette, fruit and milk and after bed time, and in true January style commitment to my resolution to try a new dish every week, Will and I decided to cook from my new book, Yotam Ottolenghi's Plenty. We happened to have all the ingredients for his soba noodles with mango and aubergine, and it was delicious. The only adjustment we made was to steep the red onion in lime juice so it wasn't so oniony, but apart from that, we followed the recipe to the letter and it's a keeper.
I love aubergine, and I would even go as far as to say it's my favourite vegetable. Well, it is today, anyway.
