Galton Blackiston’s Rustic ratatouille is really simple yet wonderfully colourful.

Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 4, 220°C, fan 200°C.

Peel the onions, cut into quarters and then cut each quarter lengthways again. Roughly chop the remaining vegetables to a similar size and place into a large bowl with the onions.

Pour over the olive oil, add the garlic and use your hands to mix thoroughly. Spread out the vegetables in a roasting tray and season with salt and pepper - the job of coating the vegetables in the oil can be left to the little ones. Make sure their hands are washed before they dive in.

Place the roasting tray in the oven. Once the vegetables have started to colour, around 10-15 minutes, add the tomato and basil - leave the little ones to tear up the basil before chucking it into the roasting tray.

Mix well and return to the oven for a further 20 minutes, or until the vegetables are well coloured but remain reasonably crunchy in texture.

Remove from the oven, season to taste and serve.
