"Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food." Hippocrates. Over two thousand years ago those words were uttered by the Father of medicine, they stand good today. Never has the food we eat had greater influence over our lives. Traditional foods and healthy eating has been usurped by the multinational food giants. Do not become a victim of poor dietary information. Eat the food we evolved from, the less man is involved, the healthier the food.
Half a cup of fresh grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
Salt, pepper and mixed herbs to taste
Fry the finely chopped onion with the olive oil in a large frying pan, Americans call this a skillet I believe. When soft add the minced beef and brown. Add the double cream and tomato puree and stir well, allow to simmer for 5 minutes. Cut the aubergine into thin slices around 6mm/ around a quarter inch thick. Layer up, one layer of aubergine and one layer of the beef mix, adding some salt, mixed herbs and pepper. Place in oven set at 200c for around thirty minutes. Remove and cover with plenty of cheese. Place back in the oven and cook for a further 5 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown. The photograph is before cheese has been added.
