1 Preheat oven to 210°C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Score eggplant flesh in a criss-cross pattern, being careful not to pierce skin. Place eggplant, cut-side down, on the tray and spray lightly with oil. Bake for 25 minutes, turning halfway, or until golden and tender.
2 Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine hummus and half of the lemon juice.
3 In another bowl, combine watercress, fennel, remaining lemon juice and oil. Toss gently.
