Serves: 6


Method

1 First prepare the rouille. Put the red pepper, garlic, chillies and olive oil into a liquidizer or food processor and process until fairly smooth. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula occasionally to make sure you blend all the ingredients evenly. Add the breadcrumbs, salt and pepper to taste, and process again to form a thick paste. Transfer to a small bowl, cover and chill until ready to serve.


2 Prepare the vegetables according to type and size - the dish will look more attractive if all the vegetables are of a similar size, or are cut into the similar-sized pieces. Boil or steam the vegetables until just tender. Drain and refresh under cold running water, then drain again thoroughly.


3 Arrange the vegetables on a large serving platter. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Serve with the rouille, garnished with roughly torn fresh mint leaves.
