Oven Roasted Ratatouille

oven-roasted-ratatouille

I love ratatouille, it’s comforting, healthy and packed full of flavour. In the cooler months it’s perfect to eat piping hot from the oven but in the summer I love to eat it cold the next day. This isn’t a particularly authentic version but it’s faster and I love the flavour of roasted vegetables.

It’s a great way to get a good intake of vegetables, plus it’s so simple and delicious that it’s a great recipe to have in your repertoire.

The vegetables are roasted until tender and caramelised and the cherry tomatoes add a wonderful burst of freshness. Eggplant needs to be well cooked to make it juicy and flavoursome, so it takes a good sixty minutes in the oven. It’s perfect served with brown rice or quinoa.
