Eat More Veg! Easy to do when Roasted with Mozzarella Cheese!

Mediterranean vegetables roasted and topped with oozy melty mozzarella, equals double yum!
Made up from stuff in the fridge, all I had to buy was the mozzarella.  I served the vegetables with crispy crumbed chicken, recipe in the next post. 


So easy to do and can be prepared ready to cook later the same day - just cover in cling film and pop it into the fridge.  I'd remove it an hour before cooking as the baking tray will be so cold.




To serve more people, just add more of everything and use a bigger baking tray - simples!

To serve 2 you will need:
1 courgette (zucchini) - sliced
1 red onion - thinly sliced
half an aubergine (eggplant) - sliced
1 red sweet pointed pepper - sliced into rings and seeds removed
2 cloves of garlic - thinly sliced
a few baby plumb tomatoes - halved
1 ball of mozzarella - sliced
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
a couple of glugs of Extra virgin olive oil 

Preheat your oven to 200c/400f/gas6

How to do it:
Throw all the vegetables and garlic into a suitably sized baking dish. sprinkle with sea salt and pepper.  Add a couple of glugs of olive oil and mix with your hands so everything is nicely coated with the oil and seasoning.

  
Throw the sliced mozzarella on top, drizzle with a little more olive oil.
Pop the tray into a preheated oven for about 30 to 40 minutes.   

 
Serve immediately with whatever you fancy.

That looks yummy and I'll be trying it for sure. Some crusty garlic bread and it could be a whole meal even.

I love that you put the American names for things in your blogs. The first time I visited England I had no idea what a courgette was until I saw one in the market with the name above it. Yes, I can google to find out, but it's so thoughtful of you to put it right out there for us.

PS:I'm still counting a Jammie Dodger as a fruit!

Looks fab, Jan and like you said...has to be served ASAP, when the cheese is still hot and gooey.
