Roasted Ratatouille


Gotta love this one-pot dish! It's delicious and so easy to prepare. All you need to do is chop some vegetables, add some olive oil/herbs, set the oven timer and relax!

Typically ratatouille can be a mix of eggplant, zucchini, squash, garlic, onion, bell peppers, and tomatoes with an olive oil drizzle. As to the herbs, I used basil in this recipe but I've also experimented with thyme and loved it. The great thing about this recipe is that it's a delicious way to eat your veggies all year round!

I made this recipe with a side of quinoa and bulgur blend. Ratatouille also tastes delicious served over couscous or with some crusty bread! If you have Celiac Disease or Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity, try brown rice, millet, or plain quinoa (not the blend, so without bulgur)!
