Stuffed moussaka eggplants
1. Set oven to 220°C.

2. Halve each eggplant lengthways. Slice to make a diamond pattern (a few cm deep but not through the skin). Rub with oil, place face down in a baking dish. Roast for 25 minutes.

3. Heat oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Dice onion, grate carrots and zucchini, crush garlic. Add to pan as you go. Add allspice and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes, or until softened.

4. Add pork mince to pan. Cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes, breaking up any lumps with a wooden spoon. Stir in tomatoes, tomato paste and 1/2 cup water, bring to the boil. Simmer for 10 minutes.

5. Prepare salad, toss with yoghurt and vinegar. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

6. Turn cooked eggplants cut-side up, lightly press down middle and spoon in pork mince. Garnish with basil leaves and serve with side salad.
