What is Ratatouille

Ratatouille is a classic dish from Southern France of stewed vegetables. There’s no formalized recipe or method, but it typically includes eggplant, tomato, zucchini, onion, and bell pepper. It’s a humble stew and surprise, it’s not anything like the ratatouille you see in the Pixar movie.  

There are many techniques for cooking ratatouille.  The most important in my opinion is to keep the integrity of each individual vegetable so that you can taste them in the dish.  Many ratatouille recipes end up a soupy mess of veggies. 

In this recipe, you’ll roast all the vegetables on two sheet pans until golden and caramelized, then combine in the end with fresh burst tomatoes, olive oil and balsamic that brings the liquid to the dish.  

We add briny olives and tangy feta along with a depth of flavor from balsamic vinegar plus brightness from fresh lemon juice to this version.  

While feta, olives and balsamic are not traditional to a French ratatouille, the combination makes the dish unique and memorable.  It’s all about the Mediterranean fusion here, trust me it works!

The dish reminds me of the Greek Briam, which is a dish of roasted vegetables, then stewed with tomatoes.  By using fresh tomatoes and caramelizing the vegetables with a higher heat, you get a fantastic depth of flavor not found in a classic ratatouille or briam.

How to Make Ratatouille 

Preheat the oven to 425° F.

Combine eggplant, red and yellow bell peppers, garlic cloves, and onion on a sheet pan.  Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.  Add 4 sprigs of thyme and 2 sprigs of rosemary. 

On a separate sheet pan, combine the zucchini and yellow squash.  Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Add 4 sprigs of thyme and 2 sprigs of rosemary. 

Place the sheet pans in the oven and roast for 40 minutes.  Stir the vegetables a few times while roasting and transfer the bottom pan to the top rack and the top pan to the bottom rack once during the cooking process for more even cooking. 

Add the cherry tomatoes to the baking sheet with the bell peppers and eggplant and continue to roast for 20 minutes until the tomatoes burst and the squash and zucchini are fully golden and caramelized.  

Combine the zucchini and squash onto the baking sheet with the tomatoes, eggplant and peppers.   Toss with 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar and a drizzle of olive oil.  Sprinkle with feta cheese and add the green olives.  Roast for another 5 minutes until the olives are warm and the feta cheese is golden and melted. 

Transfer to a serving platter and serve with freshly squeezed lemon juice and fresh basil.
