Edamame hummus 
  • Pour boiling water over the edamame beans, drain the water, and rinse them with cold water. Allow the beans to drain in a sieve.
  • Blend the beans with the remaining ingredients until the hummus is smooth.
  • Cover the hummus and chill in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes. Season to taste.
Grilled vegetables 
  • Heat a grill or griddle pan until hot.
  • Brush all the vegetables with oil.
  • Grill the tomatoes for approx. 2 minutes on each side, salad onions and garlic for approx. 3 minutes on each side, and aubergines and courgettes for approx. 3 minutes on each side – press aubergines and courgettes with a spatula, if necessary, to release some of the liquid.
  • Keep the grilled vegetables warm in a large dish as the rest finish cooking.
  • Sprinkle with salt, basil, and pumpkin seeds just before serving.
  • Serve with edamame hummus and new potatoes tossed with a little butter.

To achieve perfectly grilled vegetables, start by selecting fresh, firm, and vibrant-coloured vegetables, as this will ensure the best flavours and textures. When preparing to grill, make sure the grill or griddle pan is hot enough to create a beautiful sear and prevent sticking. Evenly coat the vegetables with oil to ensure consistent cooking and avoid burning. Grill them just long enough to achieve a slightly charred exterior and tender interior. To determine if they are done, check for softened texture and slightly darkened grill marks. Ideally, they should still retain some crispness without feeling or tasting raw.
