Preheat oven to 350 degrees and wash all of the vegetables.
Separate the thyme leaves from the plant and set aside. Then finely chop the onion and set aside as well.
Chop the zucchini into 1 cm thick "coins"
Next cut the yellow and red bell peppers into 1 inch thick pieces.
Chop the eggplant into 1 to 2 inch pieces as well.
Lastly cut the tomatoes into 1 inch thick wedges.
Now combine the onion, garlic, 2/3 of the olive oil and thyme leaves in one large pot and cook until the onions are relatively soft and clear, about 5 minutes.
Add the eggplant, cover the pot and cook for another 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine the peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, and the rest of the olive oil in a large roasting pan.
