Mediterranean Casserole

This casserole is like a heartier version of a minestrone soup and makes a complete main course in itself.


Ingredients

For the casserole

  • 200g tofu cut into small pieces
  • 1 aubergine cut into 1cm dice
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 1 small green chilli finely chopped
  • 1 x 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 350ml white wine
  • 350ml vegetable stock
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée
  • 50g uncooked soup pasta e.g. margheritine or conchigliette
  • 100g carrot cut into 1cm dice
  • 100g cauliflower broken into small florets
  • 100g courgettes cut into 1cm dice
  • 50g broad beans
  • 50g pitted black olives quartered
  • Salt and pepper to taste

To serve

  • 1 tbsp chopped mixed herbs

Method

  1. In a non-stick pan, fry the tofu and aubergine gently in the oil, until evenly browned.
  2. Remove the tofu and aubergine from pan and set aside.
  3. Add onion to the same pan and cook gently until softened. Add garlic and chilli and cook for a further minute.
  4. Add remaining ingredients, except for the seasonings, and the cooked tofu and aubergine. Simmer gently until pasta and vegetables are just cooked. This should take about 7-10 minutes.
  5. Add the tofu and aubergine back to the pan and heat through.
  6. Season to taste. Sprinkle over the chopped mixed herbs and serve.
