AUBERGINE WITH YOGURT AND TOMATO SAUCE(yogurt ve tomates soslu patlican)

This is one of my favourite aubergine summer dishes which is very easy to prepare and quite delicious. You can prepare this in advance as a cold starter or as a side dish. Serves 2.


  • 1 aubergine
  • oil for brushing

Yogurt Sauce

  • 6 tbsp low fat natural yogurt
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • pinch of salt

Tomato Sauce

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 small tomatoes, grated
  • pinch of salt and black pepper
  • Flat leaf parsley
Cut the aubergine lengthwise into thin slices. Brush each side with olive oil or half oil half water mixture to save on calories. Grill or griddle on a hot plate until the aubergine slices are golden on both sides. Arrange them on to the serving plate. Then mix the yogurt with garlic and salt, pour over the aubergines. Grate the tomatoes. Heat the oil in a small frying pan add the tomatoes, chopped parsley, salt and pepper. Cook for 3-5 minutes. Pour the tomato sauce over the yogurt and decorate with parsley leaves. ENJOY....
