Roasted Ratatouille

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Gerry sans Sanddunes

Ratatouille is usually a savoury vegetable stew cooked on top-of-the-stove ... but roasting in the oven intensifies the flavours. For a main course, serve this with salad and crusty bread. (I enjoy it on top of shredded lettuce with a dollop of yogurt cheese.) The recipe comes from Bonnie Stern's MORE HEARTSMART COOKING.

I should have reviewed this months ago ... I've been living on this since early summer. This is THE best ratatouille recipe I've ever come across. It's the only way I'll prepare it now -- other recipes are too soupy for me. I love the fact that all the vegetables retain their texture and individual flavors, instead of turning into one giant stew. I particularly love the piquancy that the vinegar gives it -- I've been using 1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar to one Tbsp. olive oil, and about a half-cup of fresh basil. I've also started using grape tomatoes instead of plum tomatoes; the grape tomatoes are particularly sweet when roasted (and you don't have to chop up quite as much). This is a fabulous recipe, has helped me lose my final 10 pounds on WW, and I can't thank you enough for posting it!!!
