Ingredients for 4 portions:
- 2 medium aubergines – halved and hollowed
- 2 red peppers – grated
- 50g leek – grated
- 1 scotch bonnet – finely chopped
- 3 small parsnips – peeled and grated
- Peanut butter
- 1 ripe plantain – peeled
- 2 garlic cloves – finely cut
- 1 small onions
- Salt & pepper + Vegetable oil
Preheat the oven at 180C.
After hollowing the aubergines, set the skins aside and grate its flesh.
Cut the onion in half, chop one half for the peanut sauce and grate the other half for the stuffing.
In a bowl, mix together the grated aubergine flesh, and everything that has been grated. Add in the garlic, salt, pepper and two tablespoons of oil. Taste and adjust the seasoning before scooping the mix into the aubergine skins. Place the stuffed aubergines into a Pyrex dish, then into the oven for 1 hour at 180C.
Peel the plantain and cut it in 4. Place in a baking tin, drizzle with oil, salt and put it in the oven with the aubergines for 25 minutes (preferably in the last 25 minutes).
In the meantime, prepare the sauce. Simply fry the chopped onion in one tablespoon of oil for 2 minutes, then, scoop in 2 tablespoons of peanut butter. Stir to dilute for 1 minute then pour in 400ml of water. Leave to gently simmer and reduce for 7 to 10 minutes.
Serve as suggested with the peanut sauce on the side or bottom as it may overpower the taste of the aubergine. Enjoy.

I admit – it was the plantain that drew me in (my FAVOURITE!) – but looks yum!
