Quick, tasty and nutritious food for when you’re busy

Escalivada – slow roasted peppers, aubergines and tomatoes

By Rukmini Iyer

Serves 2-3 | Prep 10 minutes | Cook 1 hr | Calories 431 (per serving)

2 whole aubergines, pricked all over with a fork

3 red pointy peppers

6 large vine tomatoes

1 red onion, quartered

a handful of fresh thyme sprigs

4 large garlic cloves, unpeeled

1 tbsp olive oil

2 tsp sea salt

50g (1¾oz) whole almonds

1 tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

25g (1oz) fresh basil, roughly torn or chopped

good crusty bread, to serve

1 Preheat the oven to 200°C/Gas Mark 6.

2 Tip the whole aubergines, red peppers, vine tomatoes, onion, thyme, garlic, olive oil and 1 tsp salt into a large roasting tin, then use your hands to coat everything really well in the oil and salt.

3 Transfer to the oven and roast for 1 hour, chucking the almonds in for the last 10 minutes to toast.

4 Remove the tin from the oven – the veg should be charred all over and very soft when prodded. Rescue the garlic, and leave the rest of the veg to sit while you whisk the lemon juice, olive oil and another 1 tsp sea salt, together with the squeezed-out and mashed roasted garlic. Using a knife and fork, remove the inedible tops and stems, then roughly tear the softened veg apart.

5 Scatter over the basil and the dressing, then mix really well together. Serve warm, with good crusty bread.

The recipes on page 54 are taken from The Green Roasting Tin by Rukmini Iyer, published by Vintage Digital. (RRP £16.99.) This book contains non-vegan recipes.
