Aubergines

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 large aubergines
olive oil flavoured with garlic
salt
pepper
2 buffalo mozzarella
16 large basil leaves

Peppers

Quantity Ingredient
2 yellow peppers, chargrilled
2 red peppers, chargrilled
olive oil
16 anchovy fillets in oil, drained
2 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley, chopped

Courgettes

Quantity Ingredient
3 courgettes, trimmed
salt
pepper
olive oil, for brushing
12 soft, sun-dried tomatoes
12 basil leaves

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Top and tail the aubergines and cut them lengthways, into slices about 5mm thick. Brush both sides of each slice with the garlic oil, season with salt and pepper, and bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.
  3. Cut the mozzarella into thick slices first and then into fingers. Lay a basil leaf on each slice of aubergine, put the mozzarella finger on top, add salt and pepper to taste, and roll up, using a toothpick to secure.
  4. After you have grilled the peppers and blackened each side of them, let them cool. Skin them and discard the seeds and stalks. Divide them each into four fillets and brush with olive oil. Place an anchovy fillet in the middle and put a layer of parsley on top. Roll up and secure with a toothpick.
  5. Cut the courgettes in thin slices lengthways, then blanch them in plenty of boiling salted water for about 5 minutes, until soft and pliable. Drain, and leave to cool. Brush with oil, put a piece of sun-dried tomato and a basil leaf at one end of each slice, and roll. Secure with a toothpick. Serve at drinks parties or as a snack.
