This is a popular Greek summertime medley of baked vegetables, and you can add others such as carrots and beans, depending on what you have. In Greece, its eaten with feta, but its also good with pork chops. Aubergines soak up a lot of oil when fried, so add more as necessary.
1. Preheat the oven to 220C/gas 7. Heat some olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and cook the aubergine in batches, adding more oil if necessary, for 57 minutes, until softened and golden. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a large bowl.
2. Add the onion and garlic to the pan, with a little more oil if necessary, and saut้ for 5 minutes, until softened. Transfer to the bowl with the aubergine. Add the potato, tomatoes, courgette, passata and 200ml water to the bowl. Sprinkle with oregano and parsley and season generously with sea salt and ground black pepper. Combine well with your hands and transfer to a large ovenproof dish. Drizzle with any remaining oil.
3. Bake for 30 minutes, then turn down the oven to 200C/gas 6. Bake for another 2030 minutes, or until the top has browned and vegetables are tender. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
