Indian Ratatouille

Indian Ratatouille created by Jostlori

This is an intriguing twist on a classic, Indian spices combined with Mediterrran flavors. A mini food processor works really well for chopping the garlic, chile, and ginger root. Serve on rice or orzo or accompanied by a crusty loaf of bread. Adapted from Moosewood Restaraunt New Classics cookbook. Enjoy!

directions

  • In a stew pot, saute the onions in the oil on medium heat until translucent, about 10 minutes.
  • Stir in the garlic, chile, ginger, cumin, coriander, turmeric, cinnamon, cardamom, salt, and saffron and saute for a minute, stirring constantly.
  • Add the orange juice and eggplant, toss to coat with the spices, cover, and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, until the eggplant is barely tender.
  • Add the squash, bell peppers, tomatoes, and basil.
  • Cover and continue to simmer about 15 minutes, until all of the vegetables are tender.
  • Add a little more orange juice or water if necessary to prevent sticking.
  • Serve hot or at room temperature.
  • If you like, add a dollop of plain yogurt to each serving and top with fresh basil and a few toasted almonds or pistachios.

    Fabulous recipe - a new favorite. It went together fast and easy, and then I let it sit on the (turned off) warm burner while we went out for a walk. When we got back the house smelled delicious, and we weren't disappointed when we dug in. I omitted the salt & oil, used a little extra ginger, and added 1 c. cooked chickpeas. DH had his over baked sweet potato, and I had mine over cooked kale. We were both happy and are eagerly awaiting leftover night. Thanks for the great recipe!

    This was very good!!! The aroma while cooking - WOW! We loved this as our weekly meatless meal, served over white rice. Will definitely make this again! Thanks for posting another great recipe, Sharon!

    I wanted to love this - very excited when I found this recipe and saw all the good reviews. Made the recipe as directed and found it bland and disappointing.
