Cooking time: 25 minutes
4 x 200g Tasman BBQ Lamb chops
80 ml (1/3 cup) Golden Grange extra virgin olive oil

1. To make ratatouille, heat 2 tablespoon oil in a large deep frying pan over high heat. Add garlic and onion, and cook stirring occasionally for 5 minutes or until onion has softened. Add eggplant and cook, for a further 5 minutes, or until eggplant has softened. Stir in capsicum, zucchini, tomatoes, paste and herbs. Bring to the boil, reduce heat to low and simmer gently, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes or until vegetables are cooked.
2. Preheat a lightly greased barbecue or char grill pan to high. Toss lamb with remaining oil. Cook for 2½ minutes each side or until cooked to your liking. Season to taste. Rest, covered loosely with foil, for 5 minutes before serving.
3. To serve, divide ratatouille among plates, scatter with extra basil leaves and top with lamb chops.
