  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 small aubergine
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • ½ lime
  • 70g basmati rice
  • small bunch coriander, a few leaves picked to serve, the rest chopped
  • 2 spring onions, thinly sliced


  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Mix the oil with ½ tbsp sweet chilli sauce and 1 tsp soy. Cut the aubergine into wedges lengthways, then transfer to a foil-lined roasting tin. Pour over the sweet chilli mixture and toss. Separate them out so they cook evenly, then roast for 30 mins.

  2. Meanwhile, mix the remaining sweet chilli, soy and the peanut butter. Squeeze in the lime, then add a splash of water and set aside. When the aubergine has 15 mins left, cook the rice following pack instructions, then stir through the chopped coriander and spring onion. 

  3. Pile the rice into a bowl, and top with the aubergine. Drizzle over the peanut sauce, then scatter over the coriander leaves and spring onions.
