Aubergine caviar, lavender and Rizzoli anchovies in sauce

Ingredients for 2 servings

• 2 aubergines
• 2 sprigs of fresh thyme (or 2 teaspoons of the dry one)
• 1 sprig of lavender (or 1 teaspoon of dried flowers)
• 1 pack of anchovies in Rizzoli sauce
• Salt
• 1 dry pepper
• Oil


Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.

Chop the thyme, lavender flowers and chilli, mix together adding a pinch of salt.

Wash the aubergines, remove the top and cut them in half.

Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the 4 halves with the pulp facing upwards.

With a knife, cut into the pulp, as if to create a grid.

Season the pulp of the aubergines with the chopped thyme, lavender and chili previously prepared. Finish off with a little oil and bake.

Cook for 30/40 minutes or until you can easily pierce the pulp with the prongs of a fork. Remove from the oven and let it cool.

When the aubergines are cold, remove the pulp with the help of a spoon and place it in a bowl; to make the sauce more homogeneous, blend it with an immersion mixer and, if necessary, add salt.

Serve on single-portion spoons adding in each an anchovy in Rizzoli sauce. Finish with lavender flowers and serve.
