This, my lovely friends, is a dish which my colleague Emma knocks up regularly for her family as a lunch or a light supper.  I’m sharing it with you, given it’s the festive season and you may be heartily sick of rich food.:)

  • 2 red peppers, deseeded and thickly sliced
  • 1 red onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 courgettes, cut into ½cm slices
  • 1 aubergine, cut into chunks
  • 2 medium red onions, each cut into 6 wedges
  • 700g plum tomatoes, halved
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 4 tbsp olive oil (I’d use less, but don’t tell Emma)
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 3 tbsp fresh pesto
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves only
  • 2 x 350g tubs of Waitrose Cherry tomato and basil sauce (or use passata with a handful of chopped fresh basil if easier)
  • 4 eggs

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. In a roasting tin, combine the aubergine, courgettes, peppers, onion and garlic, sprinkle with a few sea salt flakes, toss with the tomato and basil sauce, drizzle with the oil and vinegar and plenty of pepper and bake in the over for 1 hour, stirring half way through.
  2. After 1 hour, make 4 indents in the vegetables and crack an egg into each one. Bake until the egg whites have set (about 3-5 minutes), Drizzle with the pesto and serve.
  3. Lick lips.

A FOOD DIARY MIGHT SEEM NERDY…

As humans, we can be quite good at kidding ourselves, can’t we? Dab hands at pretending. Masters of the vague.  If you’re trying to lose fat (sorry, I never say lose weight, because it’s not our heaviness which is the point), then how much we eat and drink is...
