Ingredients:2 aubergines, thinly sliced lengthways
2 tbsp olive oil
1 red pepper, finely diced
100g broccoli florets, finely chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped
50g California Walnuts, finely chopped, plus 15 whole walnuts
125g pack reduced-fat mozzarella, thinly sliced
1 tbsp vegetarian-friendly Parmesan-style cheese, finely grated
- Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6. Brush the aubergine slices with a little oil and griddle or fry for 1-2 minutes each side.
- Add the remaining oil to a large frying pan and fry the pepper, broccoli, tomatoes and chopped walnuts for 4-5 minutes, until softened, then season well.
- Select the 12 largest aubergine slices and place half a slice of mozzarella in the centre. Divide the filling between the slices and roll up, placing them sealed-side down in a greased ovenproof serving dish.
- Finely chop any remaining aubergine slices and stir into the passata. Pour this over the aubergine rolls and scatter over the remaining mozzarella, torn and the whole walnuts. Sprinkle with Parmesan and bake for 30 minutes, until golden and tender.
