Prep Time

Harissa is a hot, aromatic chilli paste made with fragrant spices and garlic. It adds instant depth and warmth to soups and stews, and is widely used in Moroccan and Middle Eastern dishes. We've used it here to offset the tangy creaminess of the feta cheese.

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 400°F/ Gas 6

Boil a kettle (used in step 3)

Slice the aubergine(s) into 1/2cm thick discs

Peel and slice the onion(s) finely

Chop the coriander and mint finely and cut the feta into 2cm squares


Place the aubergine on an oven tray

Add 1-2 tbsp of olive oil to the tray and coat well

Season to your taste with pepper

Put in the oven for 20 min or until both sides have turned golden brown, turning the aubergine halfway through


Add the freekeh to a pot of water and bring it to a boil

Once boiling, reduce the heat and simmer gently for 15 min, or until cooked but still with a slight bite

Drain the freekeh and set aside (used in step 7)


Meanwhile, add 1-2 tbsp of olive oil to a pan over a medium-high heat

Once the oil is hot, reduce the heat and add the onion to the pan

Cook for 3-4 min, or until golden brown and set aside


Meanwhile, add the harissa and chopped mint to the feta in a bowl

Toss well to make sure the feta cubes are fully coated in harissa and mint

Tip: If the mixture is too dry to work with, add 1-2 tsp of olive oil to loosen the harissa paste


Combine the cider vinegar and 1-2 tbsp of olive oil in a small bowl

Whisk with a fork to form a dressing

Season to your taste with salt and sugar


Add the freekeh, dressing, and coriander (save a pinch to serve) to the onion

Toss the salad well
