Prep Time20 mins
Cook Time1 hr
Total Time1 hr 20 mins
Servings: 2


  • 1 orange pepper
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 medium aubergine
  • 12 garlic cloves peeled
  • 300 ml Olive oil
  • Large sprig of rosemary
  • Bunch of oregano
  • Salt and pepper


  • Chop the vegetables into medium dice - about 2cm and mix them all together in a large saucepan.
  • Cover them with olive oil and stir together to coat all the vegetables and pop the herbs on the top. Season well.
  • Simmer gently in a covered pan for 1 hour, checking occasionally.
  • Strain into a bowl, and leave for 10 minutes to drain off as much off the oil as possible.
  • Serve warm.


Tip: The oil is great for cooking with as it has absorbed the vegetable and herb flavours. I bottle it and keep it in the fridge.
