Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6. For the za’atar spiced aubergines, mix together the sesame seeds, sumac, thyme, marjoram, oregano, cumin and water, then rub this paste into the scored aubergine halves. Place these on a baking tray, cover with tin foil, and roast for 45 minutes until cooked through.


Whilst the aubergines are cooking add 2 tablespoons of water to a large frying pan over a medium heat and add the onion, garlic, ras el hanout and freekeh, and fry for 3-4 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the parsley, mint, coriander, tomato and cucumber to finish. Serve with the cooked aubergine halves.
