A Middle Eastern bread salad with feta cheese and pickled onion, served with a side of creamy roast eggplant.

Gluten-friendly option: flatbreads are replaced with buckwheat.
1. Set oven to 220ºC. Quarter eggplants lengthways, trim carrots. Toss on a lined oven tray with 2 tsp cumin, 2 tbsp oil, salt and pepper. Roast for 15-20 minutes, or until cooked through.

2. Whisk together 2 tsp dried oregano, 2 tbsp honey, 2 tbsp vinegar and 1/3 cup olive oil. Thinly slice onion and add to dressing. Season with salt.

3. Rub each side of flatbreads with oil and sprinkle with cumin. Place on second oven tray and toast in oven for 3-4 minutes, or until crispy, turning once.

4. Slice tomatoes and cucumber into rounds. Roughly chop mint leaves. Slice feta into 4 even pieces.

5. Mix yoghurt with 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 crushed garlic clove and roughly chopped mint. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

6. Spread each plate with yoghurt sauce. Divide eggplant and carrots on top. Crush flatbreads into large pieces and top with salad. Spoon over onion and dressing, season with cracked black pepper.

Notes:
Gluten-friendly option: flatbreads are replaced with buckwheat. 
Place buckwheat in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until tender but still firm. Drain and rinse under cold water.
