1/2 tsp Smoked Paprika
150g (5 1/4oz) Aubergine (Eggplant)

Preheat the oven to 150°C (300°F).
In a small mixing bowl, create your marinade by adding the olive oil, soy sauce, maple syrup and smoked paprika together. Give it a quick stir and put to one side.
Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
Place your aubergine (eggplant) strips onto a baking tray.
With a brush, coat the aubergine (eggplant) strips with the marinade and place in the oven for 30-35 minutes, turning halfway through. If you like them crispy, cook for slightly longer.
While the aubergine (eggplant) strips are cooking, prepare your lettuce, tomatoes and avocado.
Once the aubergine (eggplant) strips are cooked, toast your bread.
Layer the sandwich together like this: toast, lettuce, tomato, aubergine (eggplant), avocado, toast.
Time to tuck in....enjoy!
Avocados are a great source of healthy fats and contain a range of nutrients including folate, which is important for healthy red blood cells. With wholemeal bread, this sandwich is a good source of fibre. Add some sliced tofu for an extra protein boost.
