Ratatouille

This French classic was made for us by Frenchman Maurice, who helped us out in early 2019. Served with sauteed potatoes, this vegetable rich medley is simply delicious!

Recipe

Ingredients

  • 350g aubergine (eggplant)
  • 350g courgette (zucchini)
  • 350g red/yellow bell peppers
  • 350g onion
  • 500g tomatoes
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 6 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Salt & Pepper

Method

  1. Peel the skins off the tomatoes (boiling them for 4-5 seconds beforehand should help do the trick!), and cut into chunks. Slice your aubergine and courgette, and slice into strips your onion and peppers.
  2. In a pot, heat your olive oil and cook your onions and peppers until soft.
  3. Add your tomatoes, garlic, thyme, bay leaves, salt and pepper – cover with a lid and simmer over a low heat for 40 minutes or so.

4. While waiting, fry your aubergine and courgette in another saucepan until soft. Once soft, add into your main saucepan and cook for a further 10 minutes – and you’re done!

*As the vegetables leak quite a lot of juice, you can end up with a watery ratatouille. If that happens, we recommend draining the liquid and simmering it in a saucepan for a while until it becomes thick, then adding it to the dish as a sauce on top!
