Dinner For Aline
Made this dinner in 2007 (ish) for my gluten-intolerant, lactose-intolerant, vegetarian, later-to-be-my-cute-landlady Aline
before she became my landlady.
I have to say, it was pretty good particularly considering I heavily modified some untried recipes for the occasion.
Lemon Aubergine Slices
side veg vegan
A surprisingly simple way to cook tasty aubergines.
- lemon juice
- olive oil
Slice the aubergines into ¾" thick slices or so.
Rub a little salt into each side, drizzle them with lemon juice (about 1 lemon per 1-2 aubergines),
then leave them to drain for 15-30 minutes.
Pat the slices dry and shallow-fry in plenty of olive oil until golden on both sides.
Mango with Raspberry Honey Sauce
- 1 mango
- some raspberries
Cut the mango into bite-sized pieces, or turn it into a couple of nice hedgehogs.
Make the raspberry sauce - boil up the raspberries (add a little water if necessary)
until they disintegrate, then strain into a pan and add honey.
Simmer the sauce until it becomes syrupy, then pour over the mango pieces and serve.
