Caramelised onion & aubergine bake……

Here’s a recipe to tickle your tastebuds. Simple, quick and melt in the mouth delicious.

It’s a great one to prepare in the morning and just pop in the oven at dinner time. It even tastes yummy cold, the day after. Sounds perfect to me 🙂


1 tbsp coconut oil

1 large aubergine (sliced length ways)

1 courgette (sliced length ways)

1/2 cup pine nuts

2 large beef tomatoes (thinly slices)

3 large red onions (thinly sliced)

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp chilli powder

Salt and pepper

Grated cheddar cheese


Turn your oven onto about 180/200 fan asst

Start by frying off your red onion and pine nuts in the coconut oil, season and cook for about 10 mins on a low heat. Add your tomatoes, chilli and cinnamon and cook until the onions have caramelised. About another 15 mins. Leave to one side.

Add your slices of courgette and aubergine and a little more coconut oil, if needed. They literally only need a couple of minutes. You just want to soften them a little. Turning once.

Start layering your baking dish. I put the tiniest bit of coconut oil on the base, then the onion mixture. Followed by aubergine and courgette, then the grated cheese. Repeat but make sure you completely cover the top with cheese.

Bake for about 25 mins and then serve.

No nasties in this meal, just a sumptuous sweetness from the onions and a hint of heat from the chilli.

I hope you enjoy cooking and eating this 🙂

Happy Tuesday all xxx
