Ratatouille Recipe

A great side, a flavoursome snack and a popular dish for a new or expert chef: [typography font=”Cantarell” size=”14″ size_format=”px” color=”#ff6666″]ratatouille[/typography] !

Full of wholesome veg, you can prepare this dish on the day or a day in advance, and know it will be a hit with all those sitting round your table.

Ratatouille can take approx. 10 mins to prepare and 45-50 mins to cook. What’s great is that most of this does not require your full attention, so you can get on with the rest of your meal prep.

Step 3:

Step 4:

  • Once the veg is soft add the tinned tomatoes
  • As well as this, add the salt and pepper (3-4 grinds each), garlic, squeeze in half a lemon, and a sprinkle of sugar
  • If you want to add any herb at this point then 1-2 teaspoons will be enough – something like basil/oregano/ rosemary can work here.

Step 5:

  • Let this simmer for a while so all the flavours combine

*Stir every so often to keep everything mixed together*

  • Keep it on a medium heat for approx. 45 minutes

Step 6:

  • Leave to cool once cooked and ready

Serving suggestions:
– If you are serving up on the same day you can serve the ratatouille luke warm as it is.
– I recommend heating the ratatouille in the oven for 15-20 minutes before serving. This will give the vegetables a slightly roasted texture. Be sure to keep this covered with foil in the oven.
– You can also serve up cold, but this isn’t to the taste of everyone!

Enjoy!
