Food Monday ~ Roasted Ratatouille

Roasted Ratatouille
Preheat the oven to 220°C

In a bowl mix

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 handful fresh basil leaves,
  • 1 handful fresh parsley
  • 1 heaped teaspoon coriander seeds, crushed
  • freshly milled black pepper
  • 1 rounded dessertspoon salt

Chop in chunky dice

  • 2 medium courgettes
  • 1 small aubergine
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 each small red and yellow pepper
  • 1 lb ripe tomatoes skinned

Add to oil mixture and stir until well coated.  Using a slatted spoon, spread in a single layer on a shallow roasting tray.  Roast on the highest shelf of the oven for 30-40 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and tinged brown at the edges.
Serve with a baked potato or pasta and a side salad.

** When making this dish for one, I dice the potato and include it in with the vegetables and serve with a side salad.  A tasty lazy dish, just what I need today, 😀
