Eggplant Salsa with Burrata

Method

Heat extra virgin olive oil in a medium sauté pan and add eggplant. Coat eggplant completely in the extra virgin olive oil and then season with salt and pepper and cumin seeds before cooking for 5 minutes or until golden. Now add the tomatoes and cook for a further 5-10 minutes with a ¼ cup of water from the burrata and the lid on. Add the caster sugar, raisins and sherry vinegar and mix through.

Remove from the heat and add the pine nuts and herbs. Place into a bowl and make an indent in the centre. Nestle in burrata. Serve warm with crusty bread or some more halved fresh tomatoes.
