corn on the cob, on the side


Heat the grill to high. Prick the aubergine all over with a fork. Grill the aubergine until it’s charred and soft (around 20 mins). Set aside to cool

Heat the oil in a large ovenproof skillet or frying pan, add the onion and fry until softened (around 5 mins). Add the tomato purée, paprika, curry powder, sugar, basil and seasoning. Stir well to combine and cook for a couple of minutes. Add the beans and cook for a few more minutes stirring occasionally. Gradually add the chopped tomatoes and simmer.

When the aubergine’s cooled, slice it in half and scoop out the flesh with a fork and cut into long strips to resemble pulled pork. Add to the pan and stir well to combine.

Transfer to the oven and bake until the sauce has thickened (around 10–15 mins)

Build the burger. Place a few lettuce leaves on each bun followed by the pulled aubergine, vegan cheese slice, sliced tomatoes and onion. Absolutely Delicious. Enjoy x
