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.

Sophisticated version of the chilled soup.

Lemon Aubergine Slices
side veg vegan
A surprisingly simple way to cook tasty aubergines.

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.
MMMM - tasty!

Mango with Raspberry Honey Sauce
dessert veg
Serves 2

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.
A quick and easy recipe that's quite tasty and looks pretty nice too.
You could obviously adapt for any fruit/berry combination.
