Satay Aubergine

Silky, roasted aubergine in a creamy satay sauce, served with rice, cucumber and a fresh squeeze of lime. This recipe couldn't be easier to make but the end result is an incredibly moreish dish that's sure to impress!

Simply chop the aubergine into wedges, toss in a garlic and chili marinade and roast until charred on the outside and melt-in-your-mouth silky, then toss in a creamy, rich satay sauce. Fresh herbs, cucumber and lime cut through the richness of the sauce, for a wonderfully fresh and bright dish. 

Peanuts contain good amounts of protein, helping to keep you fuller for longer; combined with coconut milk will deliver iron, magnesium, folate and vitamin E too. The cucumber and spring onions contain some vitamin K, essential for blood clotting and healthy bones, but for an extra nutrition boost you could serve this up with some kale or roasted greens
