Vegetable stacks with tomato and red pepper coulis

By Robin Robertson

Serves 4 | Prep 30 mins | Cook 50 mins | Calories 135 (per serving)

1 large aubergine, trimmed and cut into four round slices about 1cm (½in) thick

1 large red onion, cut into four slices about 1cm (½in) thick

1 large yellow or orange pepper, sides cut vertically to make four square pieces

4 large Portobello mushrooms, stalks and gills removed

1-2 large ripe tomatoes, cut into four slices about 1cm (½in) thick


3 tbsp minced red onion

2 plum tomatoes, chopped

2 roasted red peppers

1 tsp white miso paste

1 tsp dried basil

½ tsp dried thyme

5mm (¼in) piece of fresh turmeric, grated (or ¼ tsp ground turmeric)

ground black pepper

fresh parsley, to garnish

1 Preheat the oven to 220°C/Gas Mark 7.

2 Line two large baking sheets with silicone mats or baking parchment. Arrange the aubergine slices in a single layer on one of the sheets. Bake the aubergine until soft, turning once, about 15 minutes. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and set aside to cool; then remove the aubergine from the sheet.

3 Meanwhile, on the second baking sheet, arrange the onion slices in a single layer and bake for 7-8 minutes. Turn over the onion slices, place the pepper pieces on the same baking sheet as the onion, and roast until the vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes longer. Set aside to cool.

4 Arrange the mushroom caps, gill side up, on the baking sheet the aubergine was on. Roast until softened, about 10 minutes. Set aside to cool for a few minutes.

5 Lower the oven temperature to 180°C/Gas Mark 4. Assemble the roasted vegetables in stacks: to begin, leave the four mushroom caps, gill side up, on their baking sheet. Top each cap with a slice of aubergine, followed by a slice of onion, then a pepper slice, topped with a slice of tomato. Cover the baking sheet and bake until the vegetables are hot, about 20 minutes.

6 While the vegetables are cooking, make the sauce. In a frying pan, heat 3 tbsp water over medium heat and add the minced onion. Cover and cook for 4 minutes, or until soft. Stir in the plum tomatoes, roasted peppers, miso, basil, thyme, turmeric and black pepper, to taste. Cover and cook until the vegetables are very soft, about 5 minutes longer. Transfer to a food processor and purée the sauce until smooth. Keep warm over a low heat until you’re ready to serve.
