It is better to choose tomatoes, eggplant and zucchini of about the same diameter, so the dish will turn out more beautiful. Fresh thyme can be substituted for dried thyme. Zucchini can be used both yellow and green at once. In the cartoon of the same name, it was ratatouille who helped the main characters impress the restaurant critic. Therefore, below I will tell you in more detail how to cook ratatouille like in a cartoon. It turns out very tasty and aromatic!
Prepare all ingredients.
Cut the bell pepper in half, bake in an oven preheated to 200 degrees until soft. About 15 minutes. Then cover with foil so that the skin comes off easily from the pulp. Peel the halves of the pepper and cut into cubes.
In a saucepan, sauté the diced onion and the garlic. Approximately 10 minutes.
Add baked peppers, tomato sauce, thyme leaves, salt and ground black pepper. Simmer for another 10 minutes to thicken the sauce.
Place the resulting sauce in a baking dish.
Cut the zucchini, eggplant and tomatoes into slices. My eggplant is large, so I cut it a little.
Alternating layers, place them in a baking dish.
Whisk the garlic with the olive oil.
Top with garlic oil. Season with thyme. Season with salt and pepper. Cover the dish with foil, bake for about 2 hours until the vegetables are soft at a temperature of 150 degrees. Then remove the foil and cook for another half hour at 180 degrees.
Ratatouille as in the cartoon is ready, bon appetit!
