1. Preheat oven to 180 ºC. Sprinkle diced eggplant lightly with salt, and place in a colander. Allow to stand for 30 minutes. Rinse, drain and pat dry. Set aside. 2. Heat oil in a large frying pan. Add onions and toss over a low heat for 10 minutes, taking care not to burn them. Stir in garlic and eggplant, continue cooking over a low heat for 2 minutes. 3. Stir in courgettes, tomatoes, green pepper, herbs and seasoning. Add a generous pinch of sugar and mix well. Divide ratatouille among 6-8 aluminium foil squares (shiny sides inside). Wrap carefully, then place parcels onto a baking sheet in the oven or on the coals. Bake for 45 minutes or more (less if cooking over the coals). 4. Just before serving; open parcels at the seam and sprinkle with shredded black olives.
