Ratatouille Deliciousness

IMG_4365

Today I let my little man help me make ratatouille! We had so much fun making this easy dish together!

Ingredients:

1 eggplant

1 yellow squash

1 zucchini

1 red pepper chopped

1 chopped onion

5-6 cloves of minced garlic

1 can organic diced tomatoes

3 twigs of thyme

1/2 cup water

4 tbsp organic olive oil

First, set your oven to preheat at 375 degrees. Combine tomatoes, minced garlic, onion, water and 3 tablespoons of oil into a large pot. Stir. This will be your sauce. Next take your washed eggplant, squash, and zucchini and slice into very thin slices. Then chop the red pepper. This is where I let Logan, my 4 year old, jump in. I told him to make a eggplant-squash-zucchini sandwich, taking one of each and stacking on top, and then place it in the pot. When you are done arranging, it should look something like this:

Sprinkle the red peppers on top and then drizzle the last tablespoon of oil. Remove the fresh thyme from twigs and sprinkle over vegetables. Place in the oven and roast for about 60 minutes. This serves about 5 people and is about 160 calories per serving. My family loves this dish and was asking for second helpings, to which I said, “Of COURSE!”
