Herby Aubergine (eggplant)

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by -Sylvie-

I used to not like aubergines, until I once had a sandwich with hummus, arugula and roasted aubergine and have been a convert since. I like the simplicity of this dish and love the leftovers cold in a sandwich the next day. I usually serve these as a side when we're having a bbq. Preparation time includes time for marinating.
