We came across this dish in a local tapas restaurant and decided to try to recreate it at home. It's super simple and really lovely. If you can have gluten then just omit the Xanthan Gum and use wheat flour.
Free From: Dairy, Eggs, Gluten, Soya
Prep Time: 1 hour draining time and 10 minutes prep
Cooking Time: About 15 minutes - but I use two frying pans for speed.
2 Aubergines – sliced, about 4mm thick. You don’t want really thin slices or it will cook too quickly
1/3 cup gluten free flour
½ tsp Xanthan Gum
2 teaspoons of sea salt
Salt and Pepper
4 tablespoons of runny honey
Slice the aubergines into reasonably thick slices – about 4mm will do. You want them to hold their shape.
Put into a colander and sprinkle with 2 teaspoons of sea salt. Leave for one hour. When the hour is up pat them dry with kitchen paper.
Put the gluten free flour and Xanthan Gum on a large plate and season with salt and pepper
One by one put the aubergine slices into the flour and pat the flour down so it sticks to each slice. It won’t be a thick covering – more of a dusting.
Heat the oil and fry the slices a few at a time. Turn over when nicely browned – about 3 minutes a side.
Keep them warm (in an oven set at the lowest temp) and continue until you have fried them all.
Drizzle with honey and serve with Lebanese chicken.
