2 red peppers, deseeded and chopped

2 courgettes, thickly sliced
3 tbsp olive oil
400 g / 14 oz canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed

1: Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6.

2: Place the red peppers, yellow peppers, onions and courgettes in a roasting tin and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the oil. Roast for 35–40 minutes, until they are slightly charred at the edges.

5: Meanwhile to make the dressing, place the avocado, yogurt, spring onions, garlic and lime juice in a small blender and blend until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper, if using.
6: Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan, add the burgers and cook for 5–6 minutes on each side, until cooked through.

7: Divide the roasted ratatouille between four bowls, top each portion with a burger, then drizzle with the dressing and serve immediately.
