Garden Fresh – Easy Zucchini Ratatouille
When you want a healthy vegetable dish, give this Zucchini Ratatouille recipe a try. It’s a one pot meal that celebrates the season’s best garden produce.
And, it’s perfect for vegans and vegetarians and folks that want a meatless meal.
But don’t be fooled by this humble, understated dish. In actuality, it packs a lot of flavor when combined with grilled peppers, tomatoes, onions, eggplant and mushrooms.
You can even adda protein, like cannellini beans but you’ll find that this ratatouille recipe can definitely stand on its own when it comes to a main dish.
As mentioned above, this recipe uses fresh eggplant, celery, zucchini, peppers, and vine ripened tomatoes that are stewed together in a fragrant broth, it’s clearly a winner for being a healthy go-to meal.
For a vegan or vegetarian twist use a homemade vegetable stock instead of chicken stock.
And to top it off, sprinkle some fresh grated Parmesan cheese. I like to soak of any remaining juices with some crusty bread.
However, should you have leftovers, use it to make the most flavorful Minestrone you’ve ever tasted.
So what are you waiting for? Gather those veggies and stew away! Enjoy!
