Recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C
  2. Peel the sweet potato and slice into thin discs (approx. 1/2cm wide). Parboil* until slightly soft (approx. 5mins).
  3. Cut the leaves off the beetroots and set aside.
  4. Peel the beetroots: slice two into thin discs for the ratatouille, and one into 1cm chunks for the salad. Parboil until slightly soft (approx. 10 mins)
  5. While the vegetables are boiling, heat oil in a frying pan.
  6. Finely dice the onion then fry until soft (approx. 5 mins).
  7. Add the tomato paste, a large tsp of rosemary, a tsp of thyme, 2 basil leaves, and salt and pepper. Fry for a few minutes so that the flavours mix into the sauce.
  8. Slice aubergine and tomatoes into thin discs.
  9. Line an oven dish with the tomato sauce. Arrange the sweet potato, beetroot, aubergine and tomato discs in alternating order in upright lines across the dish
  10. Put in oven and bake until vegetables are cooked and just turning crispy (approx. 30 mins)
  11. Meanwhile, rinse and roughly chop the beetroot leaves, including the red stems.
  12. In the same pan used to make the sauce, heat a little more oil and fry the rest of the onion and the beetroot leaves until soft. Add a few more sprigs of rosemary and thyme
  13. Add the beetroot chunks to the pan and mix the salad together.
  14. Take the salad mix out of the pan and leave to cool.
  15. Mix with a light vinaigrette
  16. Take the oven dish out of the pan and arrange the layered vegetables on a plate. Add the salad on the side and sprinkle a pinch of beansprout
