INGREDIENTSIngredients

Roasted Vegetable Rocket Salad

  • 2 eggplants (cut into wedges)
  • 1 capsicum (sliced)
  • 2 red onions (cut into wedges)
  • 120g rocket (1 bag) 
  • ½ cup basil (roughly chopped)
  • 1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Flatbreads

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup greek yoghurt
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt

Garlic, herb butter

  • 30g butter (melted)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove (crushed)
  • 2 tsp mixed dried herbs 
  • 250g buratta, stracciatella or fresh mozzarella (roughly torn)
METHODMethod
  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees fan bake.

  2. Add the capsicum, eggplant and red onion across two baking trays. Drizzle generously with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss well to make sure all of the vegetables are coated in oil.

  3. Pop in the oven to roast for 30-35 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.

  4. While the vegetables are roasting, prepare the dough for the flatbreads. Add all the ingredients to a mixing bowl and mix together with a spoon. Once combined, use your hands to mix further before removing the dough from the bowl and placing it onto a floured surface.
  5. Knead for a few minutes to bring it all together in a large ball. Set aside on the bench to rest for 5-10 minutes.
  6. Once rested, cut into 4-6 even-sized pieces. Roll out with a rolling pin as thin as you can get them without breaking.

  7. Make the garlic and herb butter, add all the ingredients into a small bowl and mix to combine. 
  1. Heat a large pan over medium heat. Brush one side of the flatbread with the garlic herb butter. Place the oiled side down in the pan and cook until nicely browned approximately 1 minute. Brush the other side with a little more butter or olive oil before flipping, and cook for another minute or so.
  2. Once the roasted vegetables have cooked, allow them to cool for a few minutes before adding to a large bowl with the rocket and basil. Drizzle over the red wine vinegar and 2 Tbsp of olive oil and gently toss.

  3. Once everything is ready you can assemble the flatbreads. Top each flatbread with a generous serving of the roasted vegetable rocket salad and then top with the burrata, stracciatella or mozzarella.
