Ratatouille

Bonjour! Ahhh, inspired by the famous Disney Pixar animation.

How true is that fact that 'Anyone can cook'. I wouldn't have believed it myself if I didn't try my hands out at cooking when I went overseas.

This is an excellent and simple recipe for all vegetable lovers and the health freaks conscious.



Recipe adapted from Delicious.

Ingredients (Serves 4)
  • 3 tomatoes
  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 red capsicum, diced
  • 1 yellow capsicum, diced
  • 1 eggplant, diced
  • 500g tomato puree
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 tbs torn fresh basil leaves
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat and add the onion.
  2. Cook for 2-3 minutes then add the capsicum and cook for a further 5 minutes.
  3. Transfer the onion and capsicum to a plate and set aside.
  4. Add the eggplant to the pan and cook over medium heat for 5-6 minutes.
  5. Return the onion and capsicum to the pan and stir in tomato puree.
  6. Add thyme and tomatoes. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  7. Stir in the basil, thyme and garlic. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Serve warm either on its own or with roast meat or fish.
