Roasted aubergine recipe

Lentils with roasted aubergine and homemade pesto

Nutritionist Rob Hobson cooks for gut health with this easy and tasty vegan-friendly recipe. Containing plenty of fibre, and prebiotics from the onion, it's a winner.

Serves 1


  • 1 red onion, finely sliced
  • 1 aubergine, cut into 1cm cubes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 150g puy lentils (ready to eat)
  • 50g sun-dried tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 4 fresh chives, finely chopped

For the pesto

  • 1 handful fresh basil leaves
  • 1 handful baby spinach
  • 1 handful pine nuts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • Salt
  • Black pepper


  1. Spread the onion and aubergine on a lined baking tray. Drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 15 mins.
  2. Place the roasted onion and aubergine in a large bowl, add the puy lentils and sun-dried tomatoes. Season to taste, then mix together and leave to cool.
  3. Now make the pesto: place all the ingredients in a food processor and blitz to a coarse paste.
  4. Serve the pesto on top of the lentil mixture and garnish with the basil leaves.
