Aubergine (also known as Eggplant) is full of flavour and at its fleshy best from early spring right to the end of October. You'll mostly find a deep purple variety on grengrocery aisles  in the UK, but they also come in stripy and white varieties - and work brilliantly with the bold flavours of the Middle East. Here's a roundup of tasty aubergine recipes for starters, salads, snacks and mains we think you'll love, as well as some general tips for preparing and cooking this quirky vegetable.
