Ratatouille

I really want to go on a long rant right now but it might also be because I’m hungry so I’ll talk about food instead.

I’m eating a zucchini a day, people.

I.
Love.
Them.

They’re not even from our pitiful garden this year.  They’re from *gasp* the grocery store, but I don’t care!  They’re so good!  You should eat one every day too!  And a bunch of other veggies!  Because you really just can’t eat too many!

 

Ratatouille
Serves 4

Ingredients:

-1 eggplant
-1 zucchini
-1 yellow squash
-1 onion
-1 large tomato
-a splash or two of red wine
-1/2 cup water
-2 tbsp balsamic vinaigrette
-rosemary
-thyme
-basil
-olive oil

 

  1. Chop eggplant and toss in heated skillet with olive oil.  Sauté while chopping other veggies.
  2. Throw onion, zucchini, and squash in the pan and sauté until just starting to get soft.
  3. Add tomato, wine, water, vinaigrette and sauté until most liquid has been cooked out/veggies are soft.
  4. Add rosemary, thyme, basil, salt and pepper as you see fit.
  5. Sautee for a few more minutes, give it some stirs.

Maybe even put some cheese on top.  Shovel it in to your face.  Because who cares.  It’s vegetables.

I really must run – a fire truck just went by and woke up all the coyotes.  I need to tuck them all back in.
