Hey guys this is Alex today we are making
a lovely and easy ratatouille which is perfect to get the kids to eat their veg ra ta touille
ratatouille is a french vegetable stew which is tasty colourful and so easy to make well
sometimes making a ratatouille can be a bit tricky cos you have to cook all the veg separately
respect all the stages but you know what at the end it’s just a humble stew and I wanna
keep it that way let’s make a simplified version of the mighty ratatouille this recipe serves
4-6 people first off prepare all your ingredients before you start 2 red onions peel and cut
the onions into wedges then peel and finely slice 4 cloves of garlic 2 aubergines 3 courgettes
3 bell peppers trim the aubergines and courgettes de-seed the peppers and chop in to 2.5 centimeter
chunks six ripe tomatoes roughly chop the tomatoes half a bunch of fresh basil pick the basil
leaves and set aside then finely slice the stalks good to know the word itself ratatouille
comes from the Occitan language and just means mixed stew so you don’t have to make it posh
it’s already a popular and humble dish heat two tablespoons of oil in a large saucepan
on a medium heat add the chopped aubergines courgettes and peppers and fry for about 5
minutes or until golden and softened and cook through if your saucepan is too small then
you can do it in several batches spoon the veg in to a large bowl and in the same pan
add the onion, garlic and basil stalks and thyme leaves fry for ten to fifteen minutes
or until softened and golden now return the cooked veg to the pan and stir in the fresh
and tinned tomatoes add basil leaf vinegar a good pinch of sea salt and some freshly
ground black pepper at this stage you have two options the more you mix it the more silky
it will be at the end the less you mix it the more pretty it will be at the end its
a tough choice really simmer over a low heat for 30 to 35 minutes or until reduced at the
end it should be sticky and sweet tear in the basil leaves and finely grate in the lemon
zest and adjust the seasoning you can serve it with steamed rice or in my case with a
hunk of bread when you taste it you have all those different flavours in your mouth it’s
tasty it’s tangy it’s sweet it’s silky yet it’s nice to have the texture of some veg
