Bruschetta with roasted brinjal and tzatziki

These little bites of Mediterranean morishness will literally fly off the platter.


Ingredients (serves 8 people) 

  1. 3 small brinjals, sliced
  2. Olive oil
  3. Sesame seeds
  4. 2 French loaves, sliced
  5. Sliced radish, cucumber strips and rocket leaves, to garnish
  6. TZATZIKI
    1. Half a cucumber, grated
    2. 250ml Greek yoghurt
    3. 1 large clove garlic, crushed
    4. 20ml chopped fresh coriander

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.

2. For the tzatziki, sprinkle the cucumber with salt. Leave to drain in a colander for 30 minutes. Rinse with cold water, then squeeze the juice out of the cucumber. Mix the cucumber with the remaining tzatziki ingredients.

3. Sprinkle the brinjal slices with salt and set aside for 30 minutes. Wipe the brinjal slices clean with a cloth or paper towel and lay out onto a greased baking tray. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Roast in a preheated oven for 15 minutes. Turn each slice over and continue to roast until soft and golden brown.

4. Toast the slices of French loaf then place a brinjal slice onto each and top with a small spoonful of tzatziki. Top with a slice of radish and sprinkle with extra sesame seeds. Add a few cucumber strips and rocket leaves to the tray to garnish.
