  • 2 red or yellow peppers
  • 1 courgette
  • 1 large aubergine
  • 12 cherry tomatoes
  • 10 black olives, pitted and quartered
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon olive or vegetable (rapeseed) oil
  • 6 fresh basil leaves
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chives, chopped
  • 2 pinches of ground black pepper


  • Baking tray
  • Bowl
  • Chopping board
  • Knife
  • Large bowl
  • Non-stick frying pan
  • Pastry brush
  • Spatula



  1. In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the chopped parsley, chives and a pinch of black pepper
  2. Preheat a grill on high, or heat a large frying pan
  3. Core and deseed the peppers and cut into quarters. Cut the aubergine in half lengthways and then crossways into 5mm slices
  4. Trim the ends of the courgette and cut into slices diagonally, then slice the cherry tomatoes in half
  5. Using a bowl and a pastry brush, coat the vegetables well all over with half of the oil
  6. If using the grill, place the vegetables onto a baking tray, with the peppers skin side up and grill until the peppers are blackened and charred
  7. Grill the other vegetables, turning from time to time until cooked and browned
  8. If using a dry frying pan, cook the vegetables the same way, turning from time to time, but cook the peppers skin side down
  9. While the vegetables are cooking, use a little of the rest of the oil to brush onto a separate smaller frying pan
  10. When the pan is hot, pour in about a quarter of the egg mixture. It should be enough to cover the bottom of the pan in a thin layer
  11. Cook until set and golden on the bottom, then flip over and briefly cook on the other side
  12. Place onto a plate and repeat 3 more times to make 4 thin omelettes, remembering to brush more oil onto the frying pan before adding the egg mixture each time
  13. In a large bowl, mix the grilled vegetables with the olives and basil leaves and season with another pinch of ground black pepper
  14. Spoon the vegetable mix down the centre of each omelette and roll up
