There’s a great little restaurant in Islington called The Afghan Kitchen. It has a short and simple menu and is a very casual place to eat with customers sharing tables. They do a dish with roasted aubergine, it is simply sliced in half length ways and put in the oven. I love it like this! So simple and it melts in the mouth. When I work from home I like to make something like this for lunch so yesterday I roasted aubergine and sweet potato for about 30 minutes at 180C and served them with green leaves. Easy and tasty. There’s no need to slather ingredients in sauces, I just drizzled olive oil on top and let the flavours be true to themselves. Goodness, that sounds like a motivational speech for vegetables. I’m sure you know what I mean!!
