This ratatouille recipe takes no time prepare and requires only a few ingredients. It's a very simple and easy side dish that's comforting, and pairs well with almost anything.


2 medium size zucchini, roughly chopped
1 large tomato, roughly chopped
1 small eggplant, roughly chopped
1 large onion, roughly chopped
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Cooking Directions
In a medium size pot, add 2 tbsp olive oil, garlic and onion. Cook for about 5 minutes, until onions are soft and translucent. Add eggplant and cook for 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook for 3 minutes. Add the zucchini and cook 3 minutes. Lower heat to a simmer, add the last 2 tbsp olive oil, stir, cover and cook for another 10-15 minutes, until zucchinis are tender but still a little firm.

Season with salt and pepper, and serve.
