Introduction

Another impressive way to serve ratatouille.
Pretty much, it took it from my recipezaar thingy.

Ingredients

    1 vidalia onion, diced
    4 garlic cloves, crushed
    2 zucchini, diced
    1 medium sized eggplant, diced
    1 red bell pepper, diced
    1 yellow bell pepper, diced
    4 roma tomatoes, pulp and seed removed, diced
    1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    4 fresh thyme sprigs
    salt and pepper

Directions

Makes 6 servings, approx

You have to make a brunoise cut to make the impressive look it should have. So have a pretty sharp santoku or chef knive and dice it up in 2 mm dices.
If not it's still ok. Just make regular cuts.

In order to taste proper, vegetables have to be sautéed separatly. Eggplant taste like poop if its boiled. Take a small pan, and start sautéeing the onions and the garlic in some olive oil.
When they are slightly browned, add to a pot.
In the same pan, cook all the vegetables (except for the tomato) separatly, until they are slightly colored (we call that The Maillard Reaction!).

Then add the tomatoes and the thyme to the pot, and simmer on low heat until mixture hold together and looks like a compote (approx 30 minutes).

Taste, then season to your taste, If it's going to be served cold, add a little bit more salt.
