Aubergine with buttermilk dressing

I got a lovely new book recently, Plenty, by Yottam Ottolenghi, which was published a few years ago. The first thing that had to made was this very pretty aubergine dish.

This would make a really quick starter with things like pita bread, hummous and falafal or as a main with something like pine nut rice and a big salad. You simply roast the aubergine and then top with buttermilk dressing (buttermilk, yoghurt, garlic and salt) za’atar and pomegranate. The result is soft, melting thyme-flavoured aubergine with a lovely soft tangy-ness from the buttermilk and za’atar and juicy sweetness from the pomegranate.
