The first time I ever heard of ratatouille was when the Disney movie by the same name came out in 2007. According to Google, it’s a “traditional French Provencal (referring to the region of Provence in southeastern France) stewed vegetable dish.” And it turns out, it’s actually quite delicious and can be made a variety of different ways. Here’s my take on it!
To make four servings, you will need:
- 1 medium to large eggplant
- 2 medium zucchini
- 2 medium yellow summer/straightneck squash
- 1 pint cherry/grape tomatoes
- 1 tbsp. dried oregano
- 2 tsp. garlic powder
- 2 tsp. onion powder
- salt and pepper, to taste
- extra virgin olive oil
- feta cheese, crumbled
Preheat the oven to 400 F. Prepare two sheet pans with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
Roughly chop all of the vegetables, except the tomatoes, into cubes or bite-sized pieces. Divide them evenly among the trays and drizzle them with olive oil. (I recommend using a basting brush to make sure all of the vegetables are covered.)
Sprinkle the salt, pepper, oregano, garlic powder and onion powder evenly over the vegetables.
Bake for 30 minutes, or until tender. Toss the vegetables halfway through.
Serve alongside steak, chicken, or pork, with feta cheese sprinkled on top. We love ours with pork chops!
My version of ratatouille is delicious and healthy! It makes the perfect side to almost any meal and is super easy to make.
