Ratatouille

Submitted by: JUSTLOSEIT23

Introduction

by Judith Wills, Mediterranean Cooking.

This ratatouille is so amazing...hearty, healthy, very low-cal, lasts for days, one of my faves.

**I think the nutritional info might be slightly high...the book says 1 serving is 143 calories. Maybe it's the olive oil...you probably don't need a whole 1/4 of a cup to saute everything.**

Ingredients

    1 large eggplant
    2 zucchini
    1/4 cup olive oil
    1 large onion, sliced
    1 large garlic clove, chopped
    1 green bell pepper, seeded and sliced
    Salt and black pepper
    1 cup canned tomatoes
    2 tbsp. chopped fresh basil or 2 tsp. dried basil

    I usually top mine with freshly shredded parmesan cheese. Goes well with a piece of healthy, hearty bread too.

Directions

Slice the eggplant and zucchini, sprinkle them with salt and let them drain in a colander about 30 minutes. Rinse and pat the pieces dry.

Heat the oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat and saute the onion until soft. Add the garlic and saute 1 minute more. Add the eggplant, zucchini, bell pepper and seasoning. Cover and simmer 40 minutes. Then add the tomatoes and basil and simmer, uncovered, 20 minutes longer.

Makes at least 4 servings.

    I love this dish on it's own or as a side dish for meat. The oil amount is extremely high because I only add 1 or 2 tblsp. You could use broth after the initial adding of oil if you need it. Carmelize the onions first in a really really hot pan too... - 2/9/10
