Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 395°F/ Gas 6

Combine the tamari soy sauce with the smoked paprika, 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] vegetable oil and a grind of black pepper in a large bowl – this is your 'bacon' flavouring

Trim the green stalk[s] off the aubergine[s] and cut in half lengthways

Slice each half, lengthways, as finely as you can (approx. 0.5cm in thickness)


Add the aubergine slices to the 'bacon' flavouring and give everything a good mix up until the aubergine is fully coated (clean hands are the best way!)

Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper and add the coated aubergine

Put the tray in the oven for 30-35 min or until starting to crisp – this is your aubergine 'bacon'


Chop the potatoes (skins on) into wedges

Add the potato wedges to a baking tray with a pinch of salt and a drizzle of vegetable oil

Give everything a good mix up and put the tray in the oven for 25-30 min, or until cooked through and golden


Meanwhile, cut the avocado[s] in half lengthways, around the stone[s]

Remove the stone[s] using a teaspoon

Scoop the avocado out of the skin[s] using a spoon and slice it finely, lengthways


Slice the tomato[es] finely

Remove 4 [8] leaves from the little gem lettuce and wash them to remove any dirt, then set them aside

Shred the inner core[s]


Combine the free-from mayo with the Dijon mustard and a pinch of salt in a small bowl – this is your Dijon mayo


Put the ciabatta rolls in the oven for 5 min or until they're hot and crusty

Carefully slice them in half before serving
