Niçoise Ratatouille

Niçoise Ratatouille

A simple vegetable dish, easy to make and always delicious. As with most vegetables stews, it’s better the following day.


  • 2 cups eggplant, in 1-inch cubes
  • 1 Tbsp salt
  • 3 medium tomatoes
  • 2 medium onions
  • 2 zucchini
  • 2 green peppers
  • Black pepper, ground, to taste
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tsp Herbes de Provence
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 cup parsley, chopped


  1. 1

    Place cubed eggplant in a bowl. Sprinkle the salt and massage it into the eggplant for about 2 minutes. Let excess water drain for about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the other ingredients.

  2. 2

    Peel tomatoes if desired. Chop tomatoes, onions, zucchini and peppers into 1-inch cubes.

  3. 3

    Squeeze eggplant cubes with your hands to remove the bitter juice. Rinse in running water, drain well and squeeze out juice one more time.

  4. 4

    Place eggplant, tomatoes, onions, zucchini, green peppers, herbs and spices in a pot and pour the oil over them; add bay leaves and stir. Put the pot on medium heat and bring to a boil. Simmer over low heat until vegetables are softened, about 45 minutes. Cover if liquid is evaporating too quickly.

  5. 5

    Turn off heat and let cool for 20 minutes. Incorporate chopped parsley when serving.
