  • 2 x 400g tins cooked chickpeas, drained
  • 2 red onions

Method of Preparation:

  1. Peel the onions and cut into wedges. Thickly slice the courgettes. Slice the pepper in half, remove the seeds and pith and dice the flesh. Cube the feta cheese.

  2. Preheat the oven to 200C. Put the onions, red pepper, courgettes and tomatoes in a baking tin. Toss with 2 tbsp. oil and salt and pepper. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring halfway through.
