Aubergine, Rice Noodles & Peanut Dressing

Serves 2
Total Time
30 Minutes
1 medium aubergine
1 tbsp of sunflower oil
1 tbsp of reduced salt soy sauce
1 tbsp of Japanese rice vinegar
1 tbsp of smooth peanut butter (with no added sugar)
1 tsp of honey
275g pack of cooked rice noodles
1 large carrot, peeled and shredded or coarsely grated
100g of sugar snap peas, blanched and sliced on the diagonal
2 salad onions, finely sliced
Step 1

Halve the aubergine lengthways, then cut each half into 3 long wedges. Halve these long wedges widthways to make shorter wedges and toss in a bowl with 2 tsp sunflower oil and a pinch of salt. Heat a large frying pan over a high heat. Add the aubergine and fry on each side for 3 minutes until tender and golden all over.

Step 2

Meanwhile, make the dressing by whizzing the soy sauce, vinegar, peanut butter and honey in a small blender until smooth.

Step 3

Remove the aubergine from the pan and set aside. Add the noodles and remaining 1 tsp oil to the pan and fry, tossing, for 2-3 minutes until heated through. Take off the heat and toss through the carrot and sugar snaps. Divide between plates, top with the aubergine and salad onions, and spoon over the dressing.
