  • Preheat oven: 180°C, 350°F, Gas 4
  • Place the sliced aubergine in layers in a large sieve, sprinkling each layer with salt.
  • Cover and leave for at least 30 minutes to allow the bitter juices to be extracted.
  • Place the lentils, stock and bay leaves in a saucepan and bring to the boil, then simmer for approx 20 minutes until the lentils are tender.
  • If you are using canned ready prepared lentils you can miss this instruction, and add the bay leaves to the main mix while cooking instead.
  • at the olive oil in a large saucepan and gently fry the onion and garlic for 4-5 minutes. Do not allow to brown.
  • Stir the drained lentils, tomatoes, chick peas, mushrooms, tomato puree, herbs and water into the onions.
  • Bring to the boil and simmer covered for 10 minutes. Season to taste and remove the bay leaves.
  • Rinse the aubergine slices and pat dry with kitchen paper.
  • Place a few of the slices on a plate and microwave for 1 minute. Repeat this until all the slices have been microwaved. (Traditional method is to fry the slices, which can be done in this recipe if preferred.)
  • Arrange a layer of aubergines on the bottom of a deep casserole dish, spoon over a layer of lentil mixture.
  • Continue the layers until all the mixture and aubergine slices are used up, finishing with a lentil mixture layer.
  • Beat together the yogurt and egg, and season. Pour over the mixture in the casserole.
  • Sprinkle grated cheese on the top and bake for 45 minutes.
