Aubergine Bake

Suitable for babies from 12 months upwards, this traditional dish is a firm family favourite.

The aubergine soaks up the flavours of the tomato and basil, the cheese melts and it is delicious with lots of crusty bread to soak up the juices.

  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 190˚C (375˚F/Gas mark 5).

  2. 2

    Slice the aubergines into 1-cm (½-in) slices.

  3. 3

    Heat the olive oil in a nonstick frying pan and fry the aubergine until golden brown on both sides. Drain on kitchen towel.

  4. 4

    Place half the aubergine slices in a layer in the bottom of a small casserole dish, layer with half the mozzarella, half the tomato sauce, half the basil and half the Parmesan.

  5. 5

    Repeat, finishing with the Parmesan. Bake for 20–30 minutes, until the cheese is golden brown and the dish is bubbling. Serve with green vegetables or a salad and crusty bread.

  6. 6

    Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 1 month. Freeze extra portions in small sealable bags or containers, and label. To use from frozen, carefully defrost. Heat through fully before serving.
