  • 250 g (8 oz) eggplant, chopped
  • ⅓ cup (80 ml/2¾ fl oz) olive oil

1. Sprinkle the eggplant liberally with salt and leave for 20 minutes. Rinse and dry with paper towels. Heat 3 tablespoons of the oil in a large heavy-based pan. Lightly brown the eggplant and zucchini in batches. Drain on paper towels.

2. Add the remaining oil to the pan. Add the onion and stir over low heat for 2 minutes. Add the capsicum and cook for 5 minutes, or until tender but not browned. Add the garlic and chopped tomato and cook, stirring, for about 5 minutes.
