SPICY BAKED EGGPLANT

It used to be quite hard to find recipes that catered easily for vegetarian guests, luckily that’s no longer the case.  Years ago I remember searching for an interesting dish to serve my son’s girlfriend for a Christmas lunch dominated by roast pork and turkey.  The answer I finally came up with was a stuffed eggplant, don’t think it was quite as spicy as this recipe though.  Fortunately she seemed to enjoy it.

POTATO AND CABBAGE GRATIN

The Portugese are fond of potatoes and cabbage, but they’re served separately, which is how I usually serve them.  Potato and onion gratin is quite common, but this is the first time I’ve seen cabbage added into the mix.  I think it would go well with a steak or roast meat.
