  • Aubergines

    Halve the aubergines lengthwise and make 6 diagonal incisions into each half. Scatter with salt and drizzle with oil. Bake: for 40-50 mins. in the centre of an oven preheated to 180°C (convection).
  • Sauce

    Boil the pears in the boiling water for approx. 15 mins. until soft, drain. In a food processor, finely puree the pears and all the ingredients up to and including the yoghurt, season.
  • Broccoli & kohlrabi rice

    In a food processor, very finely chop the broccoli and kohlrabi (to the size of grains of rice), place in a frying pan. Add the sesame seeds, salt and pepper. Fry everything over a medium heat for approx. 10 mins., stirring constantly, until the vegetables are cooked.
  • Serve & garnish

    Divide the pear sauce between 2 plates, arrange the baked aubergines on the sauce, then top the aubergines with the broccoli & kohlrabi rice. Mix the lamb's lettuce with the lime juice and add to the dish with the spring onions, drizzle with a little maple syrup and serve at once.
  • Tip:

    If you don't like kohlrabi, you can substitute it with cauliflower or just use broccoli.
