Celebrate summer vegetables when they're at their best with this simple one-tin recipe from Rukmini Iyer.

From the book

This summery dish, suggested by The Roasting Tin‘s lovely editor, Rowan, is as perfect for picnic antipasti as it is hot out of the oven. Lightly roasted feta is a revelation, and brings the flavours of the dish together in pleasing savouriness. This works beautifully with a side of hot buttered linguine.

1 aubergine, thinly sliced
2 courgettes, thinly sliced
150g baby peppers, halved (use ordinary if small not available)
2 bay leaves
2 sprigs of fresh oregano, leaves only
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
5 vine tomatoes, quartered
120g feta cheese
30g pine nuts
½ lemon, juice only


Preheat the oven to 200° c fan/220° C/ gas 7. Place the aubergine, courgettes, peppers, bay leaves, oregano, rosemary, olive oil, sea salt and a good grind of black pepper into a roasting tin, and mix well with your hands.

Transfer to the oven and roast for 30 minutes, then mix in the quartered vine tomatoes. Scatter over the feta and pine nuts and return to the oven for a further 15 minutes.

Taste and season with more salt and pepper and the lemon juice as needed before serving.
