Brinjal Bhaji with Dumplings

I very much like eggplant – it would be one of the only proper vegetables that encourages me to consider being vegetarian (except I like meat too much!) Fried or BBQ’d are my favourite treatments, but as it soaks up oil like a sponge I feel it’s a bit of a ‘naughty’ food. So to counter this, I tried keeping the oil to a minimal with a dry bhaji treatment – a concoction that was inspired from various recipes online.

Ignoring the sole gyoza – which could of been filled with the vegetarian filling – this lunch easily becomes vegan/vegetarian friendly. Kudos for Yvan picking up some very tasty cherry tomatoes.
