Arrow-Pierced Aubergine and Halloumi

Clinton Francis “Clint” Barton, also known as Hawkeye, is a skilled marksman, a former special agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. and one of the founding members of the Avengers. Known for his use of the bow and arrow as his primary weapon, Barton had become one of the best agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., responsible for the recruitment of Black Widow, whom he developed a strong friendship with. Assigned by Nick Fury into watching over the Tesseract, he was brainwashed by Loki and used as his pawn for all his evil schemes. However, following their Attack on the Helicarrier, he was freed from Loki’s mental controls by Black Widow and joined the Avengers to fight against Loki’s Chitauri army in the Battle of New York, ending Loki’s Invasion, before Hawkeye had returned to his work as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent.

Ingredients

2 Aubergines
1-2 tbsp Olive Oil
1 Red Bell Pepper
225g Halloumi
Basil Leaves
Salad (to serve)
Lemony Hummus (optional)

For Hawkeye I wanted to cook with Aubergine to match the colour of his purple outfit, however I also wanted to make small kebab food to make it look like they have been pierced by arrows.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1
Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Slice the aubergines lengthways. You will want them to be 5-10mm thick. On a skillet, fry them in batches, in oil, for a few minutes until they are tender and flexible.
Step 2
Chop the bell pepper into squarish shapes and fry them in the skillet for a few minutes until soft to touch.
Step 3
On a baking tray, lay an aubergine slice down then on one half add a halloumi slice, bell pepper square and a basil leaf. Fold the aubergine over the basil leaf and pierce a cocktail stick through. Repeat until all are done.
Step 4
Bake in the oven for 15 minutes until the bell pepper is charred and the halloumi is golden. Serve on plates with salad and an optional lemony hummus.
