Rustic Ratatouille

Ingredients:

1 yellow onion, small dice

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 red pepper, medium dice

1 green pepper, medium dice

2 frying peppers, medium dice

1 eggplant (2 1/2 cups), small dice

1 tbsp. Italian seasoning

1 (28oz) tomato puree

1 (14.5oz) diced tomatoes

2 cups zucchini, half mooned

2 tbsp. fresh basil leaves, chiffon

To taste salt & pepper

Procedure: 

  1. Heat up a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Once hot add oil swirling to cover the bottom of the pan. 
  2. Add onions and garlic cooking for a few minutes until translucent and aromatic. 
  3. Add red, green, and frying peppers to the pan continuously mixing for about 5 minutes. Season with a large pinch of salt then add eggplant and dry Italian seasoning. 
  4. Then add the tomato puree and diced tomatoes. Bring to a boil then immediately lower to a simmer. Simmer on low for about 30-45 minutes. Then add the zucchini, mixing well. Taste to see if you need to add any more salt, Italian seasoning, and pepper. 
  5. Cooked for another 15 minutes or until the zucchini and just tender. Stir in fresh basil, and adjust seasoning to taste.

**CHEF TIP: I like adding the zucchini last to give the ratatouille some crunch.**
