You'll need

2 eggplant, cut lengthways into 5mm-thick slices 250 ml (1 cup) olive oil, plus extra, to serve Juice of 2 lemons 1 tbsp chardonnay vinegar 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 1 cup each (loosely packed) mint and flat-leaf parsley, coarsely chopped Seeds from 1 pomegranate 80 gm goat’s curd

Method

  • 01
  • Place eggplant in a colander, scatter generously with sea salt and set aside for bitter juices to drain (15 minutes). Rinse under cold water briefly, then pat dry with absorbent paper.
  • 02
  • Heat a barbecue or char-grill to medium, brush eggplant using half the oil, season to taste and grill, turning occasionally, until golden and tender (4-6 minutes). Transfer to a bowl.
  • 03
  • Combine lemon juice, vinegar, garlic and remaining oil in a bowl, season to taste, pour onto eggplant and toss to combine. Top with herbs, pomegranate seeds and goat’s curd, drizzle with olive oil and serve.
Note Nomad's kitchen team makes its own goat's curd, but a good store-bought curd also gives great results.
