    Chef Kate's Note:

    A kind of Turkish ratatouille. You can increase or decrease the heat as you choose. Almost a meal in itself, with bread and salad, or a great accompaniment to something grilled. The eggplant skin is generally left on, but if you prefer, peel it. Cooking time does not include defrosting (if you have to use frozen okra).

      This makes a ton! I selected this from the NAME tag game to make for my eggplant/okra loving hubby. I had to do the first steps in my largest saute pan and then transfer it to a 13x9 barely fit. I used defrosted frozen okra, decreased the pepper flakes, doubled the thyme and used kosher coarse salt and course ground pepper. This was healthy and flavorful with a nice mix of veggies.

      WOW! This was good eating! DH & I loved it! I paired it with Crevettes Saute St Lucia - French Creole Style Sauteed Prawns and they went well with each other. I wouldn't change a thing and will definately be cooking this again. Thank you Chef Kate
