Mmm.. ratatouille!

I recently went to visit my grandma. She's taken over the last few years to making this loose ratatouille recipe and I think it's delicious! When I went to the farm stand the other day she helped me pick out the ingredients. I think this is a get way to eat some summer veggies. I threw mine in the crockpot as I had to head to a casting, but she uses a pot on the stove. Simply chop up all the veggies and throw in! Here's what's in it:

  • one eggplant (I left the skin on because I like some texture, but you can remove)
  • diced tomatoes or a can of them (I cheated. The raccoon ate my tomatoes..)
  • two large zucchini. I used one yellow and one green
  • one large onion
  • a red and green pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 minced garlic cloves
  • basil and parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste

I like to sprinkle with a little parm. Last night I laid it out under a filet of salmon. Or mix in with some pasta and use it as a veggie sauce. So many ways to mix this in with things!
