Default Ratatouille

Here is what we had for dinner tonight. It is very filling for such a low cal meal. This goes great with a nice warm whole wheat role or a slice rye bread.


Ratatouille

8 Servings

4 zucchini
2 eggplants
4 tomatoes
3 small green bell peppers
1 red bell pepper
1 onion
2 cloves garlic
parsley, chopped
basil, chopped
salt and pepper

The order of cooking is important, so keep the vegetables separate when preparing them. Slice the onion and chop the garlic finely. Seed the peppers and cut into ˝ inch squares. Without peeling them, cube the eggplants and zucchini to an equivalent size. Remove the stem and seeds from the tomatoes and cut the flesh into small pieces. Chop the parsley and basil, keeping a few small leaves as garnish. In a frying pan sprayed with cooking spray, sauté the onion, garlic and peppers over a brisk heat, stirring frequently. Season with salt and pepper as you go along. When the peppers are 3/4 cooked (they should be nice and crunchy), remove from pan and keep warm. Sauté the eggplant until they are cooked through and nice and golden. Set aside with the peppers. Sauté the zucchini, adding the tomatoes and parsley as they start to golden, and cook for a further 2 to 3 minutes. Return the peppers and eggplant to the pan, mix all the vegetables thoroughly and add the basil. If required, deglaze the pan with a little water and then reduce. Transfer to a serving dish and garnish parsley and basil leaves.
