Sometimes, you just want to eat your vacation memories, and this recipe is reminiscent of fabulous vegan lunches in Corfu Town.


If you’re not able to find this variety of aubergine in your local shop, substitute with two regular aubergines sliced in half and cook for a little longer.

For this recipe, use a good non-stick roasting tray, or line a tray with parchment paper.


  1. Heat the oven to 200°C / 400°F / Gas Mark 6.
  2. Slice off the stalk end from each aubergine and then slice each one in half lengthways.
  3. Add the minced garlic, lemon juice, olive oil and oregano to the tray and give it all a good stir, spreading it evenly across the surface.
  4. Arrange the aubergine halves on the tray, flesh-side down, ensuring all have a good coating of the oil mixture.
  5. Cook for 25 minutes. When you remove them after this time the skins should be slightly wrinkly.
  6. Turn each half over, cover the tray with tin foil and return to cook for a further 20-25 minutes.
  7. The aubergines are just right when they’re starting to dissolve slightly, but still hold their shape.
