If you are unfamiliar with the dish “ratatouille”, it is a Mediterranean vegetable stew that originates from Provence, France. While it is typically served as a side dish, ratatouille can also be served as a vegetarian main course (made more filling with the addition of some bread, pasta, or rice).
There are many methods and ingredient variations in the making of ratatouille. In addition to the base ingredients of tomatoes, eggplant, and zucchini… onions and peppers can also be used. Chef Dominique’s recipe is a very basic and uncomplicated way to make this dish – just layer ingredients in a pot and cook for 30-40 minutes until soft and the flavors are melded together. To serve, top with fresh chopped herbs (basil/parsley) and some maybe even some grated cheese. Bon Appetit….Enjoy!
