End of Season Traybake

There are so many wonderful possibilities in the garden at this time of the year, just before the first frosts of the year hits, there’s still an abundance of vegetables, I like to make sure I make the most of these last offerings, and for me this usually makes the perfect opportunity for a traybake, easy weekend food at its best.

I’m not going to tell you specifics to use, just have a look around the garden and see what is available, mine contained chicken thighs that I’d browned in the pan, shallots, garlic, a courgette that had been discovered in it’s marrowlike glory, some mirabelle plums, chunks of green tomato, some parboiled potatoes, a few baby plum tomatoes. Drizzled with olive oil, some fresh chopped herbs and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. You can leave out the chicken if you want a vegetarian version.

I cooked this in a medium hot oven 180 degC, or wonderful cooked in a wood oven or on a hot BBQ for 30-40 mins, turning a couple of times, until everything is slightly caramelised on the edges, and soft and slightly sticky. I usually pop a couple of lemon wedges in for the last 10 minutes. You can drizzle with balsamic vinegar when it comes out of the oven, and add cubes of crumbly feta as well if you have them.

We enjoyed ours with chunks of homemade bread and a glass of Rose wine.

  1. That sounds good, I particularly like the idea of feta on top.
