Food Monday ~ Roasted Ratatouille

Roasted Ratatouille
Preheat the oven to 220°C

In a bowl mix

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 handful fresh basil leaves,
  • 1 handful fresh parsley
  • 1 heaped teaspoon coriander seeds, crushed
  • freshly milled black pepper
  • 1 rounded dessertspoon salt

Chop in chunky dice

  • 2 medium courgettes
  • 1 small aubergine
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 each small red and yellow pepper
  • 1 lb ripe tomatoes skinned

Add to oil mixture and stir until well coated.  Using a slatted spoon, spread in a single layer on a shallow roasting tray.  Roast on the highest shelf of the oven for 30-40 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and tinged brown at the edges.
Serve with a baked potato or pasta and a side salad.

** When making this dish for one, I dice the potato and include it in with the vegetables and serve with a side salad.  A tasty lazy dish, just what I need today, 😀

    Ummm… sounds delicious! I have actually cooked a thick stew to eat today (and tomorrow!) but will copy this recipe of yours for a later date – and will also send it to my vegetarian daughter and son-in-law in Scotland. My girl is into growing all her own veggies and is always looking out for new and tasty ways to cook them.
    Thanks GM. Bon appetit!!

    Geri – It is tasty and for the non veggies, a few lardons, rolled pancetta or diced chicken added with the veg mixture when tossing will add extra flavour!

    I like all-in-one dishes like these.

    The ingredients are now on my shopping list.

    Please Missus, do you use tinned tomatoes (drained)?

    btw I adapted your broccoli and almond soup recipe today by using courgettes and leeks and almonds together with a homemade stock and it was yummy!

    Steph – I use fresh tomatoes, but I know some recipes call for the tinned variety. I would add the drained tomatoes and if more liquid is needed then add some of the juice.

    At the price of tomatoes I will have to pass on this one. Of course, if a recipe isn’t the instant variety, I pass on all of them anyhow.

    Darlene – I understand your wanting meals to be instant. I like to prepare a meal and leave the oven to do the work while I play! Coming back into the kitchen with the aroma invading my nostrils and tempting my taste buds makes the work involved worthwhile.
