Receta vegana de Meera Sodha para berenjena asada con salsa satay

For me, una base sólida para la amistad es el amor mutuo por los condimentos, encurtidos y salsas. Cualquiera que tenga un estante completo en el refrigerador dedicado a estos frascos de alegría encontrará un amigo aquí.. De todos ellos en todo el mundo, one of my favourites is the Indonesian satay sauce, because just a spoonful can make a person (yo) happy to be alive. Por lo general, it’s used as an accompaniment for skewers of chargrilled meat, but here I’ve roasted it with aubergines cut into long fronds so that each and every bit gets coated. I hope you’ll believe me when I say it’s the sauce that makes it.

Deberes 15 min
cocinero 50 min
Sirve 4

3 berenjenas grandes (1.2kg)
Rapeseed oil – I like Mr Organic
Fine sea salt
4 banana shallots (about 250g), pelado y cortado en rodajas finas
2 dientes de ajo, peeled and minced
2 long red chillies, very finely chopped
2 sticks lemongrass, top-third discarded, the rest very finely chopped
2cm piece fresh ginger, pelado y rallado
1 tbsp dark soy sauce
1 tbsp tamarind paste
½ tbsp soft brown sugar
250g crunchy peanut butter
– I like Manilife

Fried onions
Fresh herbs
– a handful each of mint, coriander and dill, all chopped
Steamed rice and/or salad

Calentar el horno a 220C (200Ventilador C)/425F / gas 7 and line a tray with a reusable baking mat.

Cut each aubergine into an aubergine “octopus”: keeping the top of the aubergine intact, slice down lengthways through the middle, then turn it 90 degrees and slice down lengthways again, to create four “legs”. Slice down each leg in half, to create eight legs.

Arrange the aubergines head to foot on the tray, drizzle over two tablespoons of oil and rub it into all the nooks and crannies. Do the same with a little salt, both inside and outside, luego asar por 30 minutes until soft.

While the aubergines are roasting, make the sauce. Heat four tablespoons of oil in a frying pan over a medium-low heat and, once it’s hot, add the shallots, ajo, chillies, lemongrass and ginger, and fry, revolviendo regularmente, por 15-20 minutos, hasta que esté suave y translúcido. Stir in the soy, tamarind, azúcar, three-quarters of a teaspoon of fine sea salt and peanut butter, y cocinar, emocionante, por un par de minutos. Slowly pour in 400ml water, mixing it in as you go, to create a thick sauce.

Once the aubergines have had their roasting time, pour the sauce all over the aubergines, making sure some of it goes inside all the cuts, then pop back in the oven for 10 minutos.

Servir, scatter over a handful of fried onions, sprinkle with the herbs and serve with freshly steamed rice, a salad or both.
