Method

  • Bring a large pan of water to the boil, add plenty of salt and re-boil.
  • One by one place all the vegetables starting with the peppers into the water and re-boil for 2 minutes, then refresh in cold water.
  • After all the vegetables are blanched make sure to drain very well, probably best to drain then place on kitchen paper.
  • Heat 4 tbsp of olive oil in a frying pan or better still wok and add the onions and cook for 3 minutes until they take a little colour, add the peppers and stir fry again for 3 minutes.
  • Tip into a bowl and keep warm then add the rest of the olive oil, heat again then add the courgette and aubergine and brown slightly but do not overcook.
  • Add the garlic, basil, salt and pepper and mix well.
  • Finally add the cooked onions and peppers then the warm potatoes and finally the tomatoes, warm through quickly.
