Top Tip (at the bottom to keep the interest)
If you are planning for 6 hungry but small people with big appetites but on a diet, in stead of 4, prepare a dessert using ingredients above to make up fot the small portions. Suggested desserts below:
– Aubergine jus with wafer thin chopped tomatoes
– garlic surprise (surprise being the lack of other ingredients
– whole onion coated in dieced aubergine (add salt to taste)
– Mozarella dissappointment (the dissappointment is that there is only enough for one portion)
