Ingredients
2 aubergines, sliced into 3cm pieces and cut in half
3 courgettes, sliced into 3 cm pieces
2 onions, chopped
2 red peppers, chopped
1 x 400g tin chopped tomatoes, well drained
2 garlic cloves, crushed
4 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp fresh basil leaves, torn
Salt and black pepper
Method
  1. Place the aubergine and courgettes into a colander, sprinkle generously with salt, press them down with a plate and put weights (or other heavy objects) on top of the plate. Let them stand for about one hour to draw out any bitterness or excess moisture.
  2. Gently fry the onions and garlic in the oil in a large saucepan for a good 10 minutes, then add the peppers.
  3. Dry the pieces of courgette and aubergine in kitchen paper, then add them to the saucepan.
  4. Add the basil and seasoning of salt and pepper, stir once really well, then simmer very gently, covered, for 30 minutes. Season and cook for a further 15 minutes.
