Meatfree Monday: Aubergine Tower Power

Eggplant, aubergine, brinjal… whatever the name, it taste the same! And it’s goood!

Healthy Vegetarian Eggplant Stack with Hummus, Tomato and Spinach


  • 1 ginormous/ 2 medium/ 3 puny eggplants
  • 1 cup chopped spinach
  • 1 cup chopped tomato
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 tsp. chopped garlic
  • 2 tsp. dried oregano
  • black and cayenne pepper to taste
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • Olive oil
  • hummus
  • Grated cheddar/parmesan/ feta/ other cheese of choice


Start off by slicing the aubergine into 5mm (no less, no more, or the recipe will flop for sure) slice. Rub with salt, pepper, 1 tsp. oregano and leave to relax (if a dismembered, salted eggplant can in fact feel relaxed).

Versatile Homemade Tomato Relish/ Sauce

Meanwhile, fry up the onion, garlic and oregano until onion is soft. Add the tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, and spinach.

Cheat’s version: Use tomato and onion mix. It’s Monday, totally allowed. 

While those are on the go, give the eggplant a rubbin’ with some olive oil and grill the slices.

Vegetarian Eggplant Stack with Hummus

When the sauce has simmered and the eggplant is slivered, it’s time to stack.

  1. Eggplant/aubergine/brinjal slice
  2. A good slather of homemade hummus (Recipe here)
  3. The tomato sauce
  4. Repeat
  5. Top with cheese of choice
