A ratatouille is a whole mish mash of healthy vegetables. Ratatouille is French for ‘mish mash’, and can be a mix of whatever tasty vegetables you wish to cook. The vegetables are steamed, whether eggplant, zucchini, peppers, mushrooms – whatever you find in the market or kitchen cupboard. Enjoy your ratatouille with some freshly baked bread or wholesome rice.

Make your own Ratatouille

A ratatouille is one of the simplest meals to prepare because you just need to combine vegetables with one or two herbs. It’s perfect for those moments where you’re rushed off your feet but still want to eat a healthy meal rather than pre-packaged microwave food. Ratatouille is an incredibly versatile dish. You can add together whatever vegetables you have in your fridge and still create a great meal. It’s healthy for you and can help reduce food waste too, by using a mish mash of ingredients that may otherwise have been thrown away. Just add herbs like rosemary, oregano, or sage to bring out the flavour and create a simple but delicious dinner in no time.
