Method

  1. Arrange the slices of aubergine on a non-stick baking tray, season with black pepper, and place under a medium-heat grill for 4–5 minutes, or until golden brown.
  2. Remove from the grill, turn the aubergine slice over, season again with black pepper, and return to the grill for a further 3–4 minutes, until golden brown and tender. Remove from the grill and place on a plate to cool.
  3. Add the dressing ingredients into a jam jar or pot with a tight sealing lid, seal and shake well.
  4. Once the aubergine slices have cooled, cut them into bite-size pieces, and put in a bowl.
  5. Add the chickpeas, coriander and onion to the aubergine. Pour the dressing over, and mix.
  6. Divide the spinach between 2 serving dishes, then spoon the chickpea and aubergine mix over the top and serve.
