Ingredients

2 aubergines / eggplants, small size 360 g
4 zucchini 500 g
2 yellow or red sweet peppers 400 g
2 red onions 300 g
2 tbsp olive oil, for brushing 30 mL
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 15 mL
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

The vegetables can be cooked using either an outdoor grill or a broiler in the oven.

Method

  1. Note: If using an outdoor grill, cut the peppers in half and the other vegetables into about 1,5 cm thick slices, for easier manipulation. If using a broiler in the oven, cut the peppers in quarters and the other vegetables into about 7 mm thick slices for reduced cooking time.
  2. If the aubergines are big (500 g or more), slice them, either crosswise or lengthwise, sprinkle them with coarse salt, then let drain for about 30 min. Rinse well and pat dry. If the aubergines are small, this operation is not necessary, since they are not bitter.
  3. Slice the zucchini lengthwise. Cut the peppers in half or quarters, removing the seeds and the stalks. Cut the onion into slices or wedges.
  4. Arrange the vegetables on the hot grill, brush generously with olive oil, and sprinkle with plenty of salt and freshly ground pepper. Cook them until golden brown, turning once. The zucchini and onion will take about 5 min to cook, the aubergines and peppers will take about 8 min.
  5. Alternatively, put the vegetables on an oiled baking sheet, turning them to coat thoroughly with oil. Add salt and pepper. Put the sheet under a preheated broiler 7-10 cm from the heat, and cook about 3 min for the zucchini, onions, and aubergines, 5 min for the peppers.
  6. Peppers should be peeled before serving. To ease this operation, cover or wrap the peppers in aluminum foil or in a paper bag, and let cool down a few minutes (the moisture kept under the cover will help lift the peel).
  7. Serve the vegetables drizzled with extra virgin olive oil.

Very delicious. I wasn't sure if my eggplant was considered small or large. I did use coarse salt on eggplant and let it sit there for 15-20 minutes. I rinsed and pat dry the eggplant but it still came out too salty. Maybe I put too much salt to begin with. Great alternative to sauteeing veggies in a pan.

I love grilled veggies! I used chinese eggplant instead of regular, i find it's less tangy (and seedy).

I did not know that eggplants can be this good. We do them regularly now and everybody likes them. Sometime we throw in a sweet onion too.
