Ratatouille - The healthy accessory that fits almost everything!

Originally, this vegetable stew comes from Provence in France. There are extremely many ways to make this dish and my variation is a bit simplified compared to the original, but still tastes incredibly good!




  • 5 pcs tomatoes
  • 1 pcs squash
  • 1 pcs eggplant
  • 1 pcs onion
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 can canned tomatoes
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp good olive oil
  • 2 tsp dryed oregano
  • 0,5 tsp cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper

The great thing about this dish is all the delicious vegetables you get. Make a large portion and you have several days, because this is very good, healthy and easy to make. This is simple and can just as easily be served for a feast as everyday food. Feel free to make more than you need. The great thing about Ratatouille is that it goes just as well with meat as fish.

Step 5

Bake for about 30 minutes at 200 degrees. It does not matter if it is a little longer in the oven. It can also be kept warm until severing in the oven, but then you have to turn down the heat a bit. Now this accessory is ready for serving. Feel free to try with lamb, fish, beef. Today was a very great dinner for us, served with beef mince and rice. The most important thing is that Ratatouille fits almost everything, is healthy and lasts several days in the fridge.
