I’m taking full benefit having fun with all of the the tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini and peppers proper now on this Roasted Ratatouille. I wished a simple model of ratatouille, one thing I might make with lower than 30 minutes of prep.

One of the simplest ways to cook dinner that is in two rimmed baking sheets with the eggplant, peppers and tomatoes in a single pan and the zucchini and onions in one other. Then put all of them collectively for the final 20 minutes of roasting.

The balsamic vinegar provides a candy tart taste.

Prime it off with contemporary basil for a shiny natural style.

I typically serve ratatouille with some creamy goat cheese. Add it to the pan 5 minutes earlier than the greens are completed to provide the cheese an opportunity to soften.

Inexperienced or black olives are fantastic too, they distinction properly with the candy greens.

Serve it alone or with a contemporary inexperienced salad. If you need a extra full meal serve alongside facet a roast hen or fish. This fashion you’ll be able to benefit from having your oven on.

Eat the leftovers the following day topped with a poached egg or as an omelet filling.  It’s very good in an eggless omelet with garbanzo bean flour.
