Garlic & Herb Seasoning, Vegetable Spice

You will need

5 courgettes ± 2-3 cm in diameter, sliced 3mm thick
4 medium salad tomatoes
Ina Paarman’s Garlic & Herb Seasoning or Vegetable Spice
4 T (60 ml) olive oil

Ina's Tip

Pre-preparation is a good idea for this recipe. The pre-seasoning allows all the flavours to mellow, a little liquid will leak out of the vegetables which helps to steam them while baking in the oven.

Method

Adjust the oven rack to the middle position. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Halve and slice the tomatoes. Alternate slices of courgette and tomato in rows in an ovenproof dish.
Sprinkle with Garlic & Herb Seasoning and drizzle with olive oil. Can be prepared to this stage in advance. Keep covered in the fridge if pre-preparing. Bake open for 45 minutes until the edges of the vegetables begin to brown a little.
