  1. 1

    The vegetables

    Preheat oven to 200°C, and line two baking trays with baking paper.

    Wash and cut the eggplants in half lenghtwise. Use a knife to cut a grid pattern in the flesh. Place them, open side up, on one of the baking tray.

    Press a piece of garlic into each eggplant half. Add salt, sprinkle with zaartar and drizzle with oil. 

    Place in the oven for 40 minutes until the eggplant flesh has browned and melted. Be careful not to burn the spices.

    In the meantime, wash and cut the cauliflower florets. In a bowl, mix the zaatar, cumin seeds, sumac and coriander powder with 4 tablespoons of olive oil.

    Spread the cauliflower on the second baking tray and brush it with the spice oil mixture. Season with salt.

    Place in the oven for 30 minutes, turning halfway through cooking.

    Once cooked, remove the vegetables from the oven. Leave to cool for 10 minutes and then sprinkle with Greek sauce, pomegranate, mint leaves and coriander before eating.
