I always thought this would be eaaassssyyyyy, I don't eat that much meat, I prefer fish, I'm happy to eat veggie. Lies, lies, lies. I miss sausages more than most dead relatives. Jokes!
So far I've thrown 2 full tantrums and had 5 meat dreams.
Anyway it's meant I've had to be a little more inventive at meal time so I dusted out my 'Morning Glory' Vietnamese cookbook. Best restaurant in the whole of Hoi An btw. I decided to go for the chargrilled egg plant with spring onion oil and fried garlic.
First of all make the sping onion oil- finely dice 3 spring onions and 1 large clove of garlic, keep the white and green of the spring onion separate. Fry off the garlic and white onion with 2 tablespoons of peanut oil. When that's cooked through add in the green part of the onion for a minute.
Add in a sprinkling of sesame seeds
Then oven cook the eggplant/aubergine for 10 minutes or until the skin comes off easily. Remove all skin.
