Ratatouille

a little bit of crazy in the kitchen

I’ve wanted to make this dish for quite a while now. When I saw it in this AMAZING recipe book called Harvest, that I took out from the library I was like, “yes – this will be made for supper tonight”.

What you need

  • 8 courgettes, (baby marrows)
  • 3 medium onions, (I sued one – not a fan of too much onion)
  • 10 tomatoes
  • 2  large peppers
  • 1  bouquet garni, (I had no idea what this was so I used about a handful of basil and thyme instead)
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • Olive oil

What to do

  • Peel and slice the onions. Chop the courgettes into chunks, seed and chop the peppers and cut the tomatoes
    onto quarters. a little bit of crazy in the kitchen
  • Lightly fry the onion and garlic in olive oil. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • Fry the other ingredients for five minutes and then return the onion and garlic and add the garni, (basil and thyme).
  • Cover the pan and cook gently stirring occasionally for 30 minutes.
  • Remove garni before serving, (if using this).

This can be served hot or cold, on just about any thing. I made a cauliflower bread/pizza that we ate it with. This recipe will follow shortly. I liked how fresh the ratatouille tasted – was kind of a flavour explosion in my mouth.

Happy cooking!
