- Cut the eggplant into half-centimetre rounds, and then each round into quarters. Place on a roasting tray and drizzle generously in olive oil. Sprinkle with sea salt, and roast at about 200C for about 25 minutes, until the eggplant is golden brown and the edges start to char.
- Cook soba noodles according to packet instructions, then rinse well under cold water.
