Spiced turkey-stuffed aubergines

14 November 2013

Ingredients

  • 2 aubergines
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 250g turkey breast mince
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp harissa paste
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 120g of Natures Table Apricots (approx 2 bags)
  • 400 g can chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 lemon, zest & juice
  • 2 tbsp flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp low-fat natural yoghurt
  1. Preheat the oven to 200C, gas mark 6. Halve the aubergines lengthways, score a 0.5cm border around the edges and scoop out the flesh. Brush the insides with 1/2 tbsp olive oil, put on a baking sheet and roast for 20 minutes (or bake first as above and then scoop out). Finely dice the flesh and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 1/2 tbsp olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat, cook the turkey mince for 5 minutes. Add the onion, garlic and diced aubergine and cook for 10 minutes. Stir in the harissa, cinnamon and apricots and cook for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in the lemon zest and 1/2 the parsley and season.
  3. Stuff the aubergine shells with the turkey mixture and bake for a further 5 minutes.
  4. Spoon a little yoghurt over the top and scatter with the remaining parsley and serve with wholewheat couscous, if liked.
