Aubergine Involtini with Herbed Ricotta
February 27, 2012 in Uncategorized
After some weekends (like the one that just passed), I need to stay away from food. I ate too much and did too little and that leaves me feeling like a Heffalump! But saying that, it’s very hard to stay away from food completely, because, well, I get hungry. But I can stick to healthy, fresh food right? Let’s hope so!
For breafkast I am having a frozen mango, grape and Greek yoghurt smoothie, for lunch I’ll probably have a salad of sorts but when dinner comes around, I always feel like I need something a bit more substantial which means meat and starch right? Wrong! With this Aubergine Involtini you get some indulgent flavour from the ricotta and rich tomato sauce but none of the heaviness a traditional meat and starch meal can have. You can, of course, do this with meat but the aubergine really is lovely with the ricotta, herbs and tomato sauce.
I served the involtini with grilled sourdough bread and a simple rocket salad and I was pleased to find that no-one even noticed the omission of meat in this meal, plus, it’s perfect for Meatless Monday.
