35 minutes


  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and quartered
  • 1 aubergine, sliced lengthways
  • 2 courgette, sliced lengthways

For the mash:

  • 1 can of haricot beans, rinsed
  • 1 garlic clove, roughly chopped

  • ¼ bunch parsley, roughly chopped
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges, to serve

You will need:

  • Olive oil
  • Salt

  • Heat the grill. Brush the vegetables with oil and arrange them over a grill pan. Grill until lightly browned, turn them over, brush again with oil, then grill until tender.
  • Meanwhile, put the beans in a small pan with the garlic and stock. Bring to the boil, then simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Mash roughly with a potato masher, adding a little water or more stock if the mash seems too dry.
  • Divide the veg and mash between 2 plates, drizzle over a dash of olive oil and sprinkle with black pepper and parsley. Add a lemon wedge to each plate and serve.
