    Mrs B's Note:

    These tasty roll-ups are simple and quick to make; they look pretty impressive too. You can make the roll-up filling in advance, if you like; it will sit quite happily in the fridge for a few hours until you need it. Cooking time includes the time for salting the eggplants.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Slice the eggplant lengthways into 1/4 inch thick 'tongues' (the more slices you can cut, the more roll-ups you will make - the remaining curved outside pieces can either be used like an 'open sandwich' or used in another dish): sprinkle the slices with salt' leave for 30 minutes then rinse and pat dry with kitchen paper.
    2. 2
      Put the chickpeas, tahini, garlic and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a food processor and whiz together to a paste.
    3. 3
      Stir in the chopped pepper, tomatoes and mint, season with salt and pepper; transfer the chickpea mix to a bowl and cover until you are ready to assemble the roll-ups.
    4. 4
      Pre heat the grill, arrange the eggplant slices on the grillpan rack and brush one side of each slice with a little of the remaining olive oil, grill for about 5 minutes; turn the slices over and repeat the oiling and grilling process (the slices should be golden and softened by the cooking process): set aside to cool slightly.
    5. 5
      Dividing the chickpea mix between the number of slices, spoon the mix onto the thinest end of each slice; roll up the eggplant slices round the chickpea mix.
    6. 6
      When serving the eggplant roll-ups make sure that the edge is on the bottom; they should stay in place, but secure the roll-ups with a cocktail stick if necessary.

      Wonderful! It's hard to find a gluten-free, lactose-free, vegetarian recipe that actually tastes delicious and this one does. I skipped the pre-salting of the eggplant, as I think most eggplant grown today is not as bitter as it was in the past. I grilled the slices on a contact grill for about six minutes and they came out nicely marked and very soft. As for the filling, I kept taking "tastes' to the point where I had to put the bowl in the fridge to make sure there was enough for the roll-ups. But one question - what do we do with the lemon juice? I have a tiny kitchen so I tend to measure out all the ingredients and then clean and put away the containers and the measuring tools. When I finished making the roll-ups, there was a lone saucer with 2 T of lemon juice perched by the edge of the stove. Lacking other instructions, I sprinkled some of it over the eggplant. That worked nicely, in the end.. The dish got rave reviews. Many thanks!

      I wish I could give 500 stars! This was fantastic. It's going straight into my "good enough for company" cookbook. It's really really good. I wouldn't change a thing. The filling is fabulous and with the leftovers I might stuff some cherry tomatoes. Or perhaps make a quiche. YUM!

      After I saw the photo for these, I knew I had to make them. I served them as a part of a 'flavours of the world' platter. The only problem I had, was I wished I had've made a heap more!
