Ingredients

  • 3 sweet red peppers
  • 3 sweet yellow peppers
  • 2 zucchinis
  • 2 red onions
  • 1 eggplant (about 1 lb/450 g)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
Seasoned Oil:
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper flakes

Method

Quarter red and yellow peppers; seed and core. Trim ends off zucchini; cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick strips. Cut onions into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick rings. Cut eggplant crosswise into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices.

Place eggplant in colander; sprinkle both sides with salt. Let stand for 30 minutes; pat dry.

Seasoned Oil: Whisk together oil, garlic, salt, pepper and hot pepper flakes; brush over vegetables.

Place peppers on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until grill-marked and tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove and let cool enough to handle; coarsely chop.

Repeat with zucchini, grilling for about 8 minutes.

Repeat with onions and eggplant, grilling for about 8 minutes.

Toss together peppers, zucchini, onions and eggplant. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 3 days.)
