Advert – Falafel served with Spicy Aubergine & Tomato Salad

This is a recipe sent to me from Cauldron Foods

1 Pack of Cauldron Falafels
2 Aubergines
4 Large Tomatoes
100ml Olive Oil
2-3 Cloves Garlic, Crushed
1 Tsp Harissa Paste
1 Tbsp Chopped Parsley
1 Small Bunch Coriander
Juice of 1 Lemon
1 Tsp Ground Cumin
Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Pitta Bread to Serve


Heat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4. Bake the aubergines for about 40 minutes until soft when pressed. Half way through the cooking time place the tomatoes in an ovenproof dish, pour over half the olive oil and cook for 20 minutes.

Remove the aubergines and tomatoes from the oven and leave until cool enough to handle. Using a sharp knife halve the aubergines , scoop out the flesh and chop to a pulp.

Skin the tomatoes, deseed and chop the flesh.

Heat the rest of the oil in a heavy based pan, add the garlic and fry until it begins to colour, stirring constantly. Add the tomatoes and harissa and cook over a medium heat for 5-8 minutes until thick and pulpy.

Add the aubergines, parsley and coriander. Stir in the lemon juice and cumin then season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Tip into a serving dish and serve warm or at room temperature with the warmed pitta bread and Cauldron Falafels
