Ingredients

  • 1 onion
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2-4 red chillies
  • 4tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
  • 500g of chopped tomatoes
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup of large, chopped rocket leaves
  • 1 medium eggplant
  • 2 red capsicums
  • 2 yellow capsicums
  • 8 asparagus spears
  • 4 medium-sized zucchini
  • 4 small red onions
  • 8 spring onions

Method

Finely mince an onion, 3 garlic cloves and 2-4 red chillies and lightly fry in 4tbsp of extra virgin olive oil. Add 500g of chopped tomatoes and a good pinch of salt. Simmer for 10 minutes. Add a cup of large, chopped rocket leaves, mix and simmer for 10 minutes more. Season and cool.

For the vegetables

Cut a medium eggplant into 2cm-thick rounds and then each round in half; cut 2 red and 2 yellow capsicum into 6 strips each from top to bottom and remove the seeds; split 8 fat asparagus down the middle, trimming off the stringy base; cut 4 medium-sized zucchini in half, lengthwise; slice 4 small red onions in half; cut 8 spring onions in half, top to bottom. Toss all the vegetables in a bowl with a little extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper so they're well coated.

Barbecue the vegetables so they're soft and slightly charred.
