1 onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 yellow bell pepper, diced

28 oz can of crushed tomatoes(795 g)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil, from 8-10 leaves


2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil, from 8-10 leaves
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 teaspoons fresh thyme
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
4 tablespoons olive oil

How to make Ratatouille

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 375 degrees F or 190 degrees C.

Step 2: Slice into almost 1/16-inch or 1-mm rounds the eggplants, tomatoes, squash, and zucchini. Set aside.

To make the Sauce:

Step 3: In a 12-inch or 30cm oven-safe pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.

Step 4: Add the onion, garlic, and bell peppers. Saute and cook for about 10 minutes or until soft. Season with salt and pepper before adding the crushed tomatoes. Stir until completely incorporated.

Step 5: Take the pan out of the heat and quickly add in the basil. Stir again. Using a spatula, smooth the surface of the sauce.

Step 6: On top of the sauce arrange from the outer edge the sliced veggies to the middle of the pan alternately. You can do something like this; eggplant, tomato, squash, then, zucchini. And season with salt and pepper.

To make the herb seasoning:

Step 7: Add the basil, garlic, parsley, thyme, salt, pepper, and olive oil in a small bowl. Mix well.

Step 8: Then, over the vegetables, spoon the herb seasoning.

Step 9: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 40 minutes, covered in foil. Remove the cover and bake for 20 minutes more or until the veggies are soft.

Step 10: Remove from the oven and serve immediately. Perfect as a main dish or side. Enjoy!


When reheating, cover with foil and heat in the oven at 350 degrees F or 180 degrees C for about 15 minutes. Or microwave accordingly.
