  • Aubergines

    Brush the aubergines and garlic with oil, season with salt. Wrap the aubergines tightly in foil. Charcoal/gas/electric grill: Grill the aubergines over/on a medium heat (approx. 200°C) for approx. 30 mins. on all sides. Grill the lemon halves (cut side down) alongside for the final 5 mins.
  • Hummus

    Scrape the aubergine flesh away from the skin using a spoon, transfer to a blender along with the garlic cloves, chickpeas and remaining ingredients, puree until smooth.
  • Charcoal/gas/electric grill:

    Combine the oil and marjoram. Thread the grilled cheese onto the skewers, brush with half of the oil. Grill the cheese over/on a medium heat (approx. 200°C) for approx. 4 mins. on each side. Drizzle the remainder of the oil over the hummus, serve with the grilled cheese.
  • Tip:

    Quicker option: instead of homemade hummus, serve ready-made hummus with the grilled cheese.
