From The French Cuisine: Ratatouille

This name may sound familiar because of its famous film but our subject is the food itself. This meal is one of the most beloved and well-consumed dishes of the French cuisine for decades. It can be done with different vegetables with tomato sauce or cheese on the top of it however, I will introduce you to the most classic and the simplest style.

Preparation time: 15 minutes                        Cooking time: 20 minutes


  • 2 medium sized zucchinis
  • 2 medium sized eggplants
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 tea glass olive oil + 1/2 tea glass of olive oil (to pour over it)
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of thyme
  • 3 sprigs of fresh rosemary

Cooking Suggestion: If you want you can add potatoes, peppers or any other vegetables in the recipe and if you don’t have a cast iron skillet you can use your ovenwares. 

How To Make It?

  1. Finely slice the eggplants without peeling their skin.
  2. Soak in salty water for 15 minutes to remove the bitterness then drain the water.
  3. Slice the zucchinis and tomatoes in the same size and shape.
  4. Put all the vegetables in a bowl then add olive oil, salt and spices over them.
  5. Grease your cast iron skillet and arrange all vegetables individually with leaving just a little space between them.
  6. Pour 1/2 tea glass of olive oil over to the vegetables.
  7. Cook in a preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes at 190°C and serve while it’s still hot!
