Yotam Ottolenghi

Tonight I tried a recipe from Yotam Ottolenghis Vegetarian book "Plenty". I wanted to cook the recipe from the front cover, as it looks amazing and I love eggplant! The recipe turned out so well, it was packed with an amazing array of flavours, quite unlike any vegetarian I have ever seen out at a restaurant before. This dish was roasted eggplant with thyme and olive oil. Then the sauce over the top was yoghurt, garlic and buttermilk, with pomegranate seeds sprinkled over the top. Amazing. On the side I did one of his salads. Basil, rocket, roasted almonds, dates, with an olive oil and pomegranate molasses sauce. Amazing as well! All this went down a treat with my sourdough to mop up the juices!
