I thought of doing something with butter beans since I mentioned them in the bean salad post. They would give a ice Maltese touch to something that I was going to do. I also had some left over roasted peppers after making the fusilli with them. And the auberginesÖ I always have plenty of them. So thatís how I came up with this one. I had it with a friend who was complaining that I havenít been making anything for him lately. He didnít say anything about it though. I liked it. Hope you will as well.
2 tablespoons of fresh chopped basil
juice of half a lemon
Cut the aubergines into 3cm cubes. Cut the peppers in half, remove the seed nests and give them a little rinse. Arrange the aubergines and peppers on a baking tray sprinkled with some olive oil. Pour over some more olive oil on top and sprinkle with some sea salt. Roast for about 25min in a 220C preheated oven. When they cool down a bit cut the peppers into chunks, do the same with the tomatoes. Mix the peppers, aubergine, tomatoes and butter beans together in a mixing bowl, add the basil and sprinkle with lemon juice and some olive oil.
