This a staple in our house – winter or summer! It can be paired with so many different foods and works well as a warming lunch to take to work too.

Ingredients How to make


  • 400 g Tomatoes
  • 300 g Aubergine
  • 200 g Red pepper
  • 140 g Courgette
  • 150 g Green pepper
  • 130 g Red onion
  • 120 g Leek
  • 4 cloves Garlic
  • 100 g Sundried tomatoes
  • 1 tsp Dried mixed herbs
  • 5 sprigs Thyme
  • 1 tsp Dried oregano

How to make

  • Chop all of the vegetables into chunky similar-sized pieces. Crush the garlic.
  • Add 6 tablespoons of water to a large heavy-based pan on a medium heat.
  • Add all of the chopped vegetables into the pan, along with the garlic, thyme, and dried herbs and stir.
  • When the pan begins to bubble, reduce the heat and allow to simmer with the lid on.
  • Place the sundried tomatoes with a little bit of water into a food processor and combine to make a paste.
  • Add the paste to the simmering pan and stir well. Do not add any more water, unless the vegetables are sticking to the bottom.
  • Leave to simmer for 20-30 minutes, until the vegetables have all softened.

Not sure what this all means?

It’s Organic September!

What is this?
A campaign to increase awareness of the value of organic foods and farming.

What are the benefits?
🌽 Supporting biodiversity and wildlife
🌽 Combatting climate change
🌽 High animal welfare standards
🌽 Reduced exposure to pesticides
🌽 Wholesome foods that you can trust

What do we stand for?
🌾 Dairy and gluten free ingredients and recipes are our version of ‘bread and butter’! Our founder, @Meerabhogal, started Meera’s Made from Scratch with the vision to nurture a community of people who have dairy and gluten allergies and intolerances. Our aim is to provide nutritious and wholesome food that is full of flavour and perfect for you, your family and friends.

🌿 Wholesome, good quality food is our ethos. We truly believe in the mantra, ‘your body is a temple’ and we aim to nurture your bodies with the best organically sourced ingredients. We use organic meat from organic farms and we are transparent about where your food comes from. Where we can, we always aim to shop local too and use fresh organic produce from local suppliers and farms.

🌍 We love our planet and our aim is for all of our work to nurture our planet too – after all, we have a duty to care for the home we all inhabit. All of our packaging is either compostable, recyclable or reusable and the majority of it is made from plant-based materials too. We do not use any plastic in our products or packaging.

We’re excited to celebrate everything organic with you, so we’re giving you 10% off all items with the code ORGANIC.

This offer is valid throughout the entire month of September and can be used as many times as you like too!

Our Chinese 5 Spice Mixture has an earthy, aromatic taste 🤩

Our spices have no added fillers or preservatives so the flavours are not dampened down in any way. This is best used on chicken thighs and simply roasted in the oven 🍗
