  1. In a large pot over medium-high heat, brown the eggplant and onion in ¼ cup (60 ml) of the oil. Season with salt and pepper. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Set aside in a bowl.
  2. In the same pot, brown the mushrooms with the pepper flakes in the remaining oil. Set aside with the eggplant.
  3. In the same pot, brown the bell peppers and zucchini. Add oil, if needed. Return the eggplant mixture to the pot. Add the tomatoes and thyme. Stir well. Bring to a boil and simmer gently for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the thyme and add the basil. Adjust the seasoning. Serve with pasta, fish, grilled chicken or on pizza.


Ratatouille is a basic vegetable dish from the southern region of France, particularly Nice. It contains eggplant, tomatoes, zucchini, onions, peppers and garlic. Each vegetable is first cooked on its own and then everything gets gently stewed together. Some elements can vary, including adding vegetables (such as mushrooms here) or various aromatic elements (such as olives). It is delicious on pizza.

  1. Ariel M. Did you use fresh basil? I don't think that 1/4 cup is too much. If you used dried basil, that is another story.

  2. Alors...rien à redire sur 99% de la recette MAIS.... 1/4 de tasse de basilic c'est beaucoup trop! La recette ne goûte que ça.... Donc la prochaine fois je fais couper cette mesure de moitié. peut-être même en 4. Je goûte à peine les légumes.

  3. ne peux vraiment pas lire cette recette toute embrouillée rien a compredre

  4. on couvre ou pas pendant le mijotage ?

  5. On a cuisiné la ratatouille. C'est délicieuse, mais je ne sais pas si je préfère plus de légumes ou non. L'Américain du sud en moi dit "mets de la citrouille". Quand je la cuisine encore, je vais mettre de la citrouille. C'est vraiment bon avec le vin en boîte

  6. Nous l’adorons! J’ai fait et mangé la ratatouille avec mon ami. Nous l'avons mangée avec des pâtes. C'est bon. Je la recommande."

  7. question: quels sortes d`oignons sont préférables ? oignons jaunes - blancs ou rouges ou autres??

  8. Used my tomatoes from the garden and fresh chillies also from my garden. Frying each step is a must. Was a hit with hubby!

  9. Have made many times - always excellent

  10. Je reprend goût à la ratatouille!!!

  11. Wow! Excellente recette! J'ai adoré!

  12. Excellente! Si vous substituez les tomates en dés en conserve pour des tomates régulières, attention au surplus d'eau de végétation.
