The Garlic Aubergine Pasta is my favourite January’s meal. It’s warming, comforting and full of delicious flavours. I think garlic, aubergine and sundried tomatoes are the best vegan pasta combinations. This recipe is super quick and easy. Perfect for quick warming dinner in a week day. I eat it so many times this month because it’s simple, fast and delicious so this is why I called it the best recipe of January.
This recipe is simple and delicious, because of the selected ingredients. I do not recommend skip any of the main ingredients (fresh garlic, aubergine, sundried tomato, chopped tomatoes, red onion, dried basil) as they change the flavour of the whole dish.
Aubergine: I prefer to cut the eggplant into smaller pieces as it gives the dish more flavour.
Oil: I use 4 tablespoons of oil for this recipe as it has a great sauce texture. Please use the desired amount of oil. The recipe will still work with less oil. The texture and taste of the sauce will be slightly different.
Lime: This is completely optional, but I like to sprinkle a little lime juice on the pasta. It tastes better for me.
Salt: I cook the onion with 1 teaspoon of salt to give the onion extra flavour. Then, when the sauce is ready, I always check how it tastes and add more if needed.
