1 onion, cubed
1 red capsicum, cubed
1 green capsicum, cubed
3 cloves garlic, chopped
200g tomatoes, peeled and cubed
100g tomato puree
1 sprig rosemary
1 sprig thyme

3tbsp olive oil
Brown sugar to taste
Salt and freshly-ground pepper to taste

Method
1. Split the eggplant lengthwise, place in a colander, and sprinkle with salt to draw out the bitterness. Set aside for 30mins, drain and cut into cubes.
2. Heat the oil in a heavy-bottom pan. Add the eggplant and cook until lightly browned. Remove and set aside.
3. In the same pan, cook the zucchinis the same way. Remove and set aside.
4. In the same pan, cook the onion until aroma. Add red and green capsicums and cook until tender, add garlic, eggplant, zucchini, tomato and tomato puree. Cook for 1min.
5. Pluck the rosemary and thyme leaves, add to the ratatouille. Simmer over low heat for 1hour. Stir from time to time.
6. Season to taste with sugar, salt and pepper. Remove from heat.
7. Allow to cool and refrigerate if not using immediately. The flavours will develop overnight.
8. Serve warm or cold, as a side dish, as a topping, or use as a base or flavouring for other recipes.



 We enjoyed Ratatouille with Pommes Duchesse (basically some puréed potatoes that includes egg yolk, butter and seasonings), sausages and sunny side-up eggs..

Hi Sonia,
Your ratatouille looks delish.I often cook a big batch and will freeze them.They taste much better after being kept and I would usually tossed them with spaghetti, make bruschetta etc.

Very classy. Looks like a dish from an expensive French restaurant. But much better since it is home-made. Oh now I know what to do with our new harvested potatoes. Like that swirl.

I had ratatouille at my friend's house last night but without the "Pommes Duchesse". But without thyme and rosemary.

Your Pommes Duchesse looks good and delicious ! I like the flowery shape !

My kids love the movie and I also watched it several times but had never cooked Ratatouille. Looks so delicious. I love veggies so I am pretty sure I'd love this, with of course the egg on top! I've seen pommes duchesse before and now with the recipe I can try it at home. They look so pretty...

Jane Chew said...
