  1. Was really nice however next time would use double the purée and some basil for extra flavour. I put tasty cheese on top before grilling!

  2. Absolutely delicious and LOVE this recipe!
    I’ve made this without browning in a pan first and it turns out fantastically.
    The topping really adds an interesting and extra delicious element even if you don’t brown under a grill.

    Good. Easy and tasted nice with a good texture. The only thing I found was the potato wasn’t cooked enough. But would do again.

    Doubled up on the puree as suggested, added Worcestershire sauce and used lamb stock. Didn’t use the potatoes and layered the aubergine came out pretty well although I’d use less ground cinnamon next time. Had it on 2 days and thought it tasted better 2nd day. Will have another another time.

    It’s a winner! Thank you so much for sharing this tasty recipe. I did swap the topping out for a white sauce and then added cheese just before popping it into the oven to brown up. The only thing I was disappointed about was there were no leftovers. Next time I make it I am doubling the recipe ?
