  2. Blister the peppers over chargrill or open gas flame - then peel and deseed.  Cut into small dice and put into a clean bowl with garlic, chopped thyme and pepper.
  3. When aubergine has cooled, split it in half lengthways and remove the central seeds with a spoon.  Scrape the flesh from the skins and place on a chopping board.  Chop the aubergine's into a minced texture. Combine the aubergine and peppers and season with lemon juice, olive oil and salt and pepper. Serve at room temperature.
