turkish roasted vegetables and peaches with pine nuts

This delicious sweet and savoury combination of roasted vegetables and fruit is perfect as a side dish to meat or just with warm flatbreads with humus. I usually serve it with other salads or saffrony couscous. Perfect for a dinner for two or a dinner party.

6 baby aubergines or one normal sized chopped into bite sized pieces
8 baby courgettes or two normal sized chopped into bit sized pieces
