Roasted Vegifix Sauce

This is a brilliant way to shift a glut of Mediterranean veg: red peppers, aubergines, tomatoes and red onions. Use a combo or just one. The sauce is fab with pasta but can also be used as a base for a sausage and butterbean stew, or as a saucy baste for roast lamb.

1. Preheat your oven to 200°C/Gas 6. Pop your roasting tray in to warm.
2. In a bowl, mix your veg with a glug of oil, salt, pepper and chilli, if using.
3. Tumble them into the warm tin, with a little gloss of oil and a gentle splash (not too much) of balsamic and/or wine.
4. Roast for 25 mins. Check. Turn veg. Add more oil and/or wine/balsamic if needed. Scatter on some herbs. Shake the pan to mix. Roast till the veg is nicely coloured, tender and sweet.
5. For a smooth sauce, pop the roast veg in a blender and blitz. Add the tinned tomatoes little by little till it’s as you want it. Taste and add more herbs, seasoning, wine or balsamic as needed.
6. For a more rustic sauce, chop the veg on a board. Then mix with as much tinned tomato as you like. Taste and adjust seasoning as above.
