Gather
  • 1 small aubergine chopped
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1/2 medium courgette sliced
  • 1/2 red pepper sliced
  • 1/2 green pepper sliced
  • 1/2 yellow pepper sliced
  • oil of choice (we used coconut)
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper
  • 2 tins chickpeas drained (keep the liquid for something else!)
  • 1 teaspoon cajun spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic granules
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • a pinch of red chilli flakes
Prepare
  1. Put all the vegetables onto a baking tray, drizzle with oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, then massage it all together (yes, dirty fingers)! Spread all the vegetables out so they are in a single layer and roast on a medium heat for 10-20 minutes (they should be just changing colour, not cooked completely).

  2. Loosen the vegetables if necessary, then add the chickpeas. Sprinkle over the cajun, garlic, paprika, chilli and a bit of extra salt and pepper. Gently stir to combine and return to the oven. (At this point if you wish you can place a tin in the oven and fill with boiling water to create steam). 

  3. Cook for a further 10-20 minutes on a medium heat until the vegetables are starting to brown. Transfer to a bowl and serve!

  4. Enjoy!
