Is summer over yet? I don’t think so. I have always been complaining about summer in Scotland- which is not real summer indeed. But this year, it looks like the Scottish summer is never ending. Not complaining at all, I’m just waiting for some pumpkins!
We have been having some crazy weather and temperatures in the last few weeks. Like 18-17 degrees with no wind and a warm sun. Which is crazy. Some friends came over during the weekend and were just astonished. Same for us, to be honest. We were just hanging out having beers and eating outside, and everything just seemed so normal and warm, it was incredible.
So well, I’ve been thinking of making this super easy and tasty stuffed aubergine for a while now, and I believe this was just the perfect timing. I just want to draw the line between summer and autumn recipes with this one. Believe me, I am done after this. Pumpkins and crunchy leaves is everything I am craving right now.

- Take out the aubergines from the oven, drain the burrata and carefully place it in the middle of the aubergine's bottom part. cover with the top and bake for further 10 minutes.
- Make a tomato sauce bed on the plate, add some aubergine pulp and place the stuffed aubergine in the middle. Season with salt, pepper and basil. Enjoy!
I do have a scientific mind, probably it’s the reason why I love to hide in the kitchen and start creating.
My cooking is healthy, fun and colorful… and really tasty!
