Zucchini, eggplant, bean salad

Zucchini, eggplant, bean salad

Great roasted veggie salad; hot or cold. From Kickwa Tembo Camp, Maasai Mara Reserve, Kenya. Their recipes are written for large crowds and use metric measurements. Adapting for American home use takes some trial and error. This is my best effort to do so. Not to worry, its all good. Substituting other white beans for the cannelloni is ok.
