This classic French vegetable stew is a real feast for the eyes! It’s a simple yet delicious dish, packed with flavour and colour.

Ingredients

Calorie controlled cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Onion(s)

1 large, finely chopped

Aubergine

2 medium, large, trimmed and cut into 3cm pieces

Courgette

2 medium, large, trimmed and cut into 2cm thick half moons

Yellow Pepper

2 medium, deseeded and cut into 3cm pieces

Garlic

2 clove(s), finely chopped

Tomato

2 large, quartered

Tinned Tomatoes

1 can(s), large, chopped

Basil, fresh

2 tablespoons, finely chopped, plus extra leaves to garnish

Thyme, Fresh

½ tablespoons, roughly chopped, plus extra sprigs to garnish

Lemon(s)

1 zest(s) of 1, finely grated

Crusty white bread roll

4 medium, to serve

Instructions

  1. Mist a large lidded pan with cooking spray and put over a high heat. Add the onion, aubergines, courgettes and peppers, then cook for 10 minutes until browned. You may need to do this in batches.
  2. Add the garlic and cook for another minute, then add the fresh and tinned tomatoes. Cover and gently simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally until the vegetables are tender but not breaking up.
  3. Season to taste and stir in the chopped basil, thyme and lemon zest. Garnish with the extra basil leaves and thyme sprigs, then serve with the bread rolls.

Notes

Try serving this without the bread as a great ZeroPoints side dish.
