  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped

  2. Put the mushrooms, gills facing up, into a roasting tin.
  3. Take 8 slices from the aubergine (crossways, not lengthways), then chop any remaining aubergine finely.
  4. Heat half the olive oil in a large frying pan and briefly fry the aubergine slices for 1-2 minutes on each side. Remove from the pan.
  5. Add the rest of the olive oil to the pan and cook the onion, pepper and chopped aubergine for 5-6 minutes. Add the tomatoes and tomato puree. Cook gently for another 1-2 minutes, then season with salt and pepper.
