Tip: avoid using a food processor for this recipe as the paste will becomes too runny. Variations: replace the grenadine syrup with lemon juice and add 3 tablespoons of tahini to the paste. You can also add a finely chopped green chilli and sprinkle chopped parsley over the dish just before serving.

Preparation steps

1.
Pierce the aubergines all over with the tip of a knife; transfer them to a baking sheet and place under the grill. Grill on all sides until the skin blisters and the flesh softens: the aubergines will have reduced considerably in volume at this point. Hold them under running cold water to cool, then cut in two, scoop out the flesh and leave it to drain in a sieve.
2.
Put the garlic and half a tsp of salt in a pestle and mortar then drizzle over the olive oil. Grind to a paste then add the lemon juice.
3.
Transfer the aubergine flesh to a bowl and mash with a fork. Add the garlic paste and combine well.
4.
Serve on a dish with the pomegranate seeds, cucumber and a trickle of olive oil.
