You Will Need : (For 2 Kievs)


1 small-medium Aubergine

2 slices WeightWatchers White Danish Bread

1 egg white

(or 2 tablespoons 2 chicks egg white)

Two 10g portions low fat spread 

(I used Tesco Olive Light. This is 1pp for 10g. Please check pp/kcal if you use a different brand)

1-2 cloves garlic

Dried Herbs

Black Pepper

Frylight Oil


***

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees centigrade.

Start by weighing 10g low fat spread per portion accurately into a small ramekin dish. If you are making more than one Aubergine Kiev, use a separate pot for each portion.

Crush the garlic into the pot.


If you like this dish really garlicky, use one clove of garlic per person. For a milder flavour, half a clove is enough.

Add herbs and black pepper. Mix together thoroughly.


Take the aubergine. Remove the leaves and stalk. Cut in half horizontally so that you have 2 even pieces.

Make a slit half way up the aubergine. This needs to be wide enough to pack the garlic mixture inside and deep enough to reach the centre. It's not very flexible, so you will need to pull it open slightly.


 Fill the hole with the mixture using a teaspoon, then push it as far into the middle of the aubergine as you can with your finger. 


Pop the bread into a food processor and blitz until you have fine breadcrumbs.


Prepare 2 bowls-one for the egg white and one for the breadcrumbs.


Close up the hole in the side of the aubergine. Dip into the egg white, coating evenly.

Transfer to the breadcrumbs, coating generously.


The breadcrumbs will sit better on the flat surface of the aubergine, so use a generous amount on the top.


Transfer to a baking sheet, mist with Frylight oil and bake flat-side-up for 40-45 minutes until the aubergine is really soft and the topping is beautifully golden.


They are delicious served like this with a fresh salad. You could make some roasted butternut squash chips too.

Alternatively, serve with spaghetti and a simple tomato sauce which is equally delicious.
