  • 2 aubergines
  • salt
  • ground mace
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • shredded rind of 1 orange to garnish

for the dressing

  • 1/2 pint natural low-fat yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons fresh orange juice
  • pinch of ground mace
  • salt and pepper


  • Halve the aubergines lengthways and sprinkle with a little salt and mace.
  • Cut four pieces of foil each large enough to contain an aubergine half. Lightly brush each aubergine half with oil and wrap in the foil. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until tender.
  • Meanwhile, to make the dressing, mix together the yogurt, olive oil, orange juice, mace and salt and pepper.
  • Unwrap the aubergines and place on a serving dish.
  • Pour the dressing over the hot aubergine halves, sprinkle with orange rind and serve immediately.
  • For a sharper-tasting dressing, substitute lemon juice for the orange juice. Use finely chopped mint instead of orange rind as a garnish.
