Roasted Vegetable Gratin - a great way to add some delicious vegetables to your plate.
Sometimes it can be hard to incorporate vegetables into your meal and you can become stuck in a rut of the same old vegetables cooked in the same old way.
Whether you are vegetarian or just want to try and eat more vegetables, then this is a great recipe to try.
It works well as a main course with some addition sides, or make it as a side to a different main course of your choosing.
For this Roasted Vegetable Gratin, I like to use Zucchini (Courgettes) and Eggplant (Aubergine) then for the sauce I use a batch of this delicious and easy to make Marinara Sauce.
The topping is some whole wheat bread as part of your HEb that I just blitz using the chopping bowl of my Nutri Ninja Food Processor with Auto IQ technology – until the bread was nice and fine like breadcrumbs

If you find your meals tend to lack vegetables, it's a great reason to cook a dish like this Roasted Vegetable Gratin as the main part of your meal. If you think vegetables first, then sometimes it can be much easier to incorporate them into a meal. For example, instead of thinking "What vegetables can I serve with my Chicken?", think "What can I serve with my vegetables?", Look at what vegetables you have to use and then you can work on a main meal around those.
I love roasted vegetables, especially zucchini and eggplant, so this was just perfect. With the lovely delicious layers of soft roast vegetables, amazing homemade marinara sauce, cheesiness and lovely golden wholewheat breadcrumbs topping, you just can't go wrong.
All baked in one dish too, after you have roasted the vegetables, so super simple too. Once ready to serve, you can just slice and place the dish in the middle of the table for everyone to dig in with some other sides of choice.
