Onion Jam (aka Onion Marmalade or, as the French call it, Confit d’Oignon) is a great condiment to have on hand. Rich and deep with a spicy undertone, it is a great accompaniment to cheese, baked dishes, curries, roasted vegetables and more. It is a rich, gutsy mixture, great added to soups, on sandwiches with layers of grilled vegetables, or in a vegetable stack with lasagne sheets, at BBQs, or in toastie cheese sandwiches –  you will find lots of uses.

Steamed Eggplant with Sesame and Spring Onion

A Japanese Style luxurious aubergine dish – salad, side dish, main course or condiment.

Ottolenghi has a great steamed eggplant recipe in Plenty More, rather like the Thai one that I posted here but just different enough to try it out.

Don’t you just love the silky texture of steamed eggplant – so different to its grilled counterpart?

Steaming maintains some of the aubergine flesh’s texture, which doesn’t happen if you cook it in any other way. It gives this dish a particular substantial quality, making it suitable to serve with just plain rice or fried tofu. It can also be used as a condiment or side dish.
