Spicy Aubergine Taco with Sassy Salsa

El Burro Mercado’s Tortilla tacos filled with soft golden aubergine, Avolands avo and Umthunzi tomato salsa, Neighbourhood Farm basil and onion.

  • Roughly chop up some aubergine, place it in a colander with some salt, and set aside to degorge. After 10 minutes, pat dry.

  • In a pan over a medium-high heat with some oil, sauté your aubergine until golden all over and cooked through – turn it as it colours. Season with some Funky Ouma Chilli Salt.

  • Make your salsa: cube some Avolands avo, slice some onion, roughly chop some basil, zest and juice some lemon. Combine together, and add some seasoning with a drizzle of olive oil.

  • In a pan over a medium heat, dry-fry the tortillas on one side for a couple of minutes until golden – then turn, and sprinkle over some grated cheese. Let it melt a bit, then remove from the pan.

  • Fill up your tacos with some golden chilli aubergine and sassy salsa. Delish!



For an additional creamy layer, season some yogurt with lemon juice and salt, and drizzle over for the final touch!
