Ingredients

  • 2 eggplants
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 2 zucchini sliced
  • 1 red onion sliced
  • 2 red peppers
  • 2 cloves garlic sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon thyme
  • 14 oz chopped tomatoes tinned
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teapoon black pepper

Topping

  • 2 medium eggs
  • 300 ml Greek yogurt
  • 2 oz Feta cheese
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  • Cut the eggplant into slices, about 5mm thick. Place them in a colander, and sprinkle with the 3 tablespoons of salt. Leave for 30 minutes to release the bitter juices and rinse under cold water. Pat dry with kitchen paper.
  • Preheat the oven to 220C/425F degrees.
  • Place the sliced eggplant, zucchini, onions, peppers and garlic in a roasting tin (will probably require two tins for this).
  • Drizzle the olive oil over the vegetable. Season with the thyme, salt and pepper.
  • Roast in the oven for 30-35 minutes, turning half-way through cooking, until golden brown and tender. When the vegetables are cooked, reduce the oven temperature to 180C/350F degrees.
  • In a small bowl, beat the eggs and yogurt. Season with the salt and pepper.
  • Put half the roasted vegetable slices in a layer in a large ovenproof dish. Spoon the tinned chopped tomatoes over and season with the oregano, salt and pepper. Repeat the layers.
  • Pour the yoghurt mixture over the vegetable layers and crumble the Feta cheese on top. Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes until golden brown.
