Keen On Aubergine

img_6378If you read my Christmas Holiday travel post, you know that I made this aubergine dish a lot when I was in Holland. This recipe is just real a winner. In all aspects. It is super easy to make, though it tastes like you have been cooking for hours, it’s super healthy and filling and everybody loves it! It’s a perfect dish for if you have a dinner party, for if a friend is coming over or to bring to someones house if you have been invited. I’m positive people will ask you for the recipe (you can just send them this link..). Also you can easily make a lot of it. You do need quite a big pan for the aubergine in case you want to double or triple the recipe. You might want to do that in two times. It’s worth it though!

1 aubergines (chopped)
1/3 cup chickpeas
