Of late, I seem to prefer laid back recipes, the kind that is more of a how-to rather than a strict need-to-follow recipe.
Like the steak lunch of last time, this literal aubergine pizza is a method with the quantities kept up to you.
The gist of it is a thickly cut aubergine (eggplant) grilled in a griddle pan until charred but still a bit firm.
It is then topped with tomato sauce (from the jar), cherry tomatoes, slices of sujuk sausage, and mozarella cheese.
A sprinkling of fresh basil leaves and a drizzle of olive oil make it extra fragrant and makes you thoroughly enjoy this almost vegetarian dish.
