Prep the veg

  • Roughly chop the onion, peppers and tomatoes keeping everything quite chunky
  • Peel and roughly slice the garlic and zest the lemon saving the juice for later
  • Pick the rosemary, thyme and the parsley leaves

Bake the veg

  • Transfer the veg to a baking dish, with the garlic, olives, lemon zest, bay leaf, rosemary and thyme sprigs
  • In a small jug, whisk together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, tomato puree, chilli flakes and paprika with a big pinch of salt and pepper
  • Pour over the veg mix and toss everything to coat
  • Place in the oven for 50 minutes, stirring half way until the peppers are really soft but still holding their shape
  • Discard the bay leaf and pour in the beans with their juices, returning to the oven for 10 minutes to warn everything through

Finish and serve

  • Stir through the lemon juice and parsley leaves
  • Scatter over the feta with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil to serve with crusty bread
