Grilled aubergines and courgettes

Serve 4 people

Preparation time: 30 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes


  • 2 medium size courgettes

  • 1 big aubergine

  • Tomato sauce*

  • Dry origano, fresh basil

  • Parmesan cheese, butter, olive oil

  • Salt and pepper.


  • Preheat the oven (ventilated) at 180 degrees.

  • Wash the vegetables and cut them into round slices about 1/2 cm thick.

  • Grilled them for a few minutes until the water they contain has evaporated (especially in the aubergine and they look like in the pictures below).

  • Oil an oven proof dish and set the vegetable slices in layers.

  • Season with salt, pepper, olive oil and sprinkle some origano on top then add a layer of tomato sauce.

  • Repeat for 2/3 layers more.

  • Make the tomato your last layer and then add some more olive oil, sprinkle a good amount of Parmesan cheese and some basil leaves on top and some butter flakes.

  • Cook in the oven for about 20 minutes.

*Tomato sauce. I use some good quality 'passata'. Heat some olive oil in a pan, with one garlic clove, when it starts sizzling add the passata, salt and pepper. Add a little bit of water and a squash of tomato puree. Stir with a wooden spoon and cook for about 10 minutes stirring occasionally.
