5 tbsp. Mediterranean herb paste
1 lemon, juiced
1 red chilli, seeded and finely chopped
1 garlic clove, finely grated
250g (8oz) feta
3 large tomatoes, sliced
3. Once cooked, brush the aubergines (eggplants) on each side with some of the herb mixture and add a little seasoning.
4. Brush both sides of the cooked aubergine slices with a little of the herb paste. Place two together lengthways with the ends overlapping, pin together with a cocktail stick. Pop a piece of tomato on top of this overlapping section, then top with cheese and a piece of pepper. Wrap the aubergine over the top and secure with another cocktail stick. Repeat with the remaining pieces of aubergine. Do this with the remaining slices of aubergine and fillings to make 12 parcels. Brush the tops with a little more of the herb sauce.
5. Return the parcels to the barbecue and cover with a lid for 5-10 minutes, until the cheese has softened. If you don't have a lid, wrap the aubergines (eggplants), in groups of 3, in foil and place on the barbecue for 10 minutes.
As part of Mediterranean cuisine, this cheese is used in all sorts of dishes — from appetizers to desserts — because it can enhance the taste of foods.
