rolled eggplant with walnut labneh

Our take on the famous Armenian stuffed eggplant salad.

These rolled eggplant are exactly the kind of appetisers that will wow your guests this holiday season. They are simple to make and as an added bonus, they look so delightfully Christmassy with the dill and pomegranate seed garnish.  

Tender roasted eggplant strips are spread with a nutty and creamy garlic labneh then rolled into finger sized morsels. Serve as an easy vegetarian side dish or appetiser that can be even made ahead.

The filling is a flavourful mixture of homemade dripped yogurt cheese, known as labneh, (learn how to make that here), crushed walnuts, garlic, ground coriander and fresh dill. Together with roasted eggplant, the combination of flavours is a definite must try!
