Ratatouille

Ratatouille is AWESOME!

It makes for an excellent side dish for any meal you are having. It has very little added fat, no added sugar, it is full of vegetables all making it a healthy and light option.

You can also make ratatouille into a light lunch by eating a bowl of it plain, or melting cheese on top…or my favorite, making it into shakshuka ( heating it up in a pan, and cracking an egg sunny side up style into the middle of it and letting it cook).

In a pot, or deep pan, heat up the oil, when the oil is hot, turn the fire down to a medium heat, and add the onions. Saute 5 minutes, then add the garlic and eggplant. Saute another 10 minutes. Add in the zucchini and peppers and saute for 10 minutes. Add in the tomato sauce, water, salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder and stir to combine. Allow the sauce to come to a boil and then turn down the heat and let simmer for 15-20 minutes until the sauce starts to thicken.

Enjoy!
