You can use any additional grilled or roasted vegetables you like, especially tomatoes and onions.

Chef's notes

The pepper and aubergines taste much better if grilled on a barbecue. As fresh peas are only available for a short period of the year, you will probably use frozen ones for this recipe. Note that the weight given above is for fresh peas, so you should defrost frozen peas, drain and pat dry before weighing. Also if they are fairly dry, they will cook better in the oil. --JuliaBalbilla 13:58, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
