Ratatouille, this typical Mediterranean summer treat is both delicious and healthy… We will cook this ratatouille in two steps: first, we will brown and stew the vegetable on the stove, then we will bake the ratatouille in the oven at low temperature. This makes the ratatouille deliciously crisp and the flavor of pepper brings a bit of sunshine to our plates.

1. To make the ratatouille: Pre-heat your oven to 360°f (180°c).

2. Wash and roughly cut your vegetables.

3. In a large wok or chef pan, heat half the olive oil and sauté the garlic and onion. Just make them brown.

4. Put all the vegetables, thyme sprigs and bay leaf in the pan with onion and garlic.

5. Season with salt and pepper to taste and add paprika if you like. Mix well to combine.

6. When the vegetables get a beautiful color, put everything in a baking dish and drizzle the remaining olive oil on top of the ratatouille.

7. Bake for 2 hours, lowering your oven temperature to 320°f (160°c). Serve the ratatouille hot or warm with white meat or fish. Enjoy!

Tips for the ratatouille recipe

  • Choose fresh and quality vegetables, fresh aromatic herbs, and quality olive oil.
  • The classic ratatouille recipe combines many vegetables, but there are also exclusively pepper ratatouille. It is also possible to add more unusual vegetables (celery, for example).
