Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 180C (350F)
  • Wash the vegetables and slice to 1/2cm (1/4 inch) thickness.
  • Rub your casserole dish with halved glove of garlic. If you like roasted garlic, add a few cloves (unpeeled) to the bottom of the dish.
  • Put a few sprigs of rosemary, thyme, savoury in the bottom of the dish.
  • Arrange the sliced vegetables in the pan upright, alternating between type of vegetable to create an interesting colourful dish.
  • Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Cover with foil and bake for 30-minutes.
  • Remove the foil and press the vegetables down and baste with the liquid to encourage the juices to flow.
  • Return to the oven and bake uncovered for 30-40 minutes.

Notes

As much as possible, try to select vegetables that are about the same diameter. However, this is not always possible with aubergines and onions, so cut the slices in 1/2 again and the arrangement will work out just fine.
