This salad is wholesome and has great texture. Adding some smoked paprika gives a really good flavour when paired with the baked aubergine flesh.  What makes this salad particularly different is that the aubergines are baked and peeled, then the flesh is broken down until it is almost a puree and it is added to the quinoa.
