Novice Foodie
I just watched the film Ratatouille and got inspired by that French specialty, Ratatouille. So, I searched for the recipe right away, and although there were a lot of processes, I still decided to give it a try. After gathering all the ingredients, I started following the instructions. Guess what? I successfully made what I wanted! The vegetables create a tasty and satisfying flavor when mixed. They blend nicely without overpowering each other, making it a chef's kiss dish. 👩‍🍳😋

Let me share the recipe with you all:

  • 1 yellow bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  1. Heat the oven to 375˚F (190˚C).
  2. Cut the eggplant, tomatoes, squash, and zucchini into thin slices, about 1 millimeter thick. Set them aside.
  3. Cook the onion, garlic, and bell peppers in olive oil until soft. Add crushed tomatoes, salt, and pepper. Stir in basil, then spread this sauce evenly in a pan.
  4. Layer the veggies**: Arrange the sliced vegetables in the pan, alternating them in a circular pattern. Sprinkle salt and pepper on top.
  5. Mix basil, garlic, parsley, thyme, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Spoon this herb mixture over the vegetables.
  6. Cover the pan with foil and bake for 40 minutes. Then uncover and bake for another 20 minutes until the veggies are tender.
  7. Enjoy the ratatouille hot as a main dish or side. You can also reheat leftovers by covering with foil and baking at 350˚F (180˚C) for 15 minutes or microwaving until warm.
