Method

  1. Preheat the oven to fan 200C/ conventional 220C/gas 7. Put the onion, courgettes, pepper and tomatoes in a shallow roasting tin and season with black pepper. Drizzle with 2 tbsp of the olive oil and toss well. Roast for 30 minutes, stirring halfway through, until the vegetables are cooked and beginning to turn brown.

  2. Meanwhile, mix the lemon juice and remaining olive oil to make a dressing. Season with salt and pepper and stir in the herbs.

  3. When the vegetables are cooked, allow them to cool for 5 minutes, then tip into a bowl with the chickpeas, feta and dressing. Toss lightly before serving. Leftovers are delicious cold and served with pitta bread.

Made this for the first time today... I am dieting and looking for something filling, nutritious and tasty. This didn't disappoint. I don't really like cheese so took out the cheese and added a flat mushroom I could not get any chives so increased the other two herbs. Veggies cooked to perfection. I love this. Quick and easy to make and enough left over for lunch tomorrow.

This looks and sounds delicious. Chickpeas are such a key cupboard stable. We love chickpeas so for a v. different twist we actually baked them in a 'cake' style recipe... https://theeighthours.wordpress.com/2015/03/28/cheesy-chickpea-cake/

I thought this was delicious. Very tasty, very healthy (protein and complex carbs in the chickpeas, plenty of vitamins, antioxidants and fibre in the vegetables and even some monounsaturated fat in the olive oil) and easy to make. An added bonus that it's pretty cheap too if you already have fresh herbs at home. I added some chopped avocado for extra creaminess and healthiness. I'll definitely be making this again.

The recipe shows 2 red onions, it should read 1 red pepper.

There's a serious mistake in the list of ingredients. Instead of red pepper it says onion.

Pleasantly surprised with this one ... I used a white onion, 1 courgette, 1 can of chickpeas, chives only and no tomatoes, to make a dish for 2. Wasn't expecting much but it was really tasty. The feta and dressing top it off nicely.

Tried this and thought it was just delicious. Realtively simple to make and a great hearty meal. I added salmon and used lime instead of lemon for the dressing.

Very godd and simple recipe. I threw in chunked yellow squash as supermarket had no zucchini (courgette). They worked well; soaked up a lot of the other flavours. I'll probably try leaving out the tomatoes next time as they went a tad too squishy and looked a bit messy in the dish.

Should it be ''one red pepper, seeded and cut into chunks' rather than 'one red onion'? :)
