Low-Calorie Grilled Mediterranean Stack Recipe

healthy, low-calorie grilled Mediterranean stack

When you’re on a weight loss plan, vegetables are going to feature pretty heavily in your daily menus. However, eating steamed or boiled veggies over and over again can get a little tiresome after a while.

Eating a variety of veg-based dishes can really help you to keep on track with a Partial Meal Replacement or Maintenance Plan, and our grilled Mediterranean stack is a great way to mix things up.

This dish of chargrilled, lightly seasoned vegetables features different layers of flavour for a taste sensation that’s low-carb and low-fat.

Pile a little bit of mushroom, aubergine, tomato, onion and courgette on your fork all at once (or as many of these veggies as you can fit!) and enjoy biting into all those flavours and textures in one delicious mouthful.

1 serving = 1 cup


  • 2 large Portabella mushrooms, sliced in half
  • 1 aubergine, sliced
  • 1 roasted red pepper, sliced
  • 1 courgette, sliced
  • 1 red onion, roughly chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled and finely sliced
  • 450 g cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tsp olive oil, with a sprinkle of basil
  • To serve: rocket leaves, salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C.

  2. Prepare the vegetables, slicing the mushrooms, aubergine, pepper, courgette, onion and garlic, and roughly chop the red onion.
