Ratatouille

Lucy Senesac

INGREDIENTS:

5 large heirloom tomato (cherokee purple are my favorite because they have more flesh/less seeds)
3 medium sized long eggplants
3 similar sized zucchini/squash
1 pepper, cut longways into 1 inch matchsticks
1 onion, cut into long slivers
3 garlic cloves, finely diced
1 bunch basil, finely chopped
1 bunch cilantro, finely chopped
1 tablespoon chopped herbs (rosemary, thyme, oregano, sage)
½-1 chile/hot pepper finely diced (to taste)
¾ cup red wine
1 tablespoon cornstarch (if you desire a thicker base)
2 tablespoons kosher salt
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon sugar

INSTRUCTIONS:

Start by chopping the zucchini and eggplant in the round, into about ¼ inch slices. If you don’t love the skins, you can peel them in a zebra pattern so you get some good skin in there! Set them aside in a bowl and add 1 tablespoon kosher salt and let sit. For the tomatoes, cut into small ¾ inch chunks so that the skins aren’t so big and put in a separate bowl. Again, add 1 tablespoon kosher salt and let sit. Finish chopping your other veggies (onion, pepper, garlic & herbs) and begin to heat a large pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil and half of the garlic. Once fragrant, add the zucchini & eggplant mixture, but be sure to drain the veggies of any water before you add them. Saute for about 10 minutes on medium to high heat, continuously tossing.

Meanwhile, start a large pot on another burner on med-high heat with the remaining olive oil, garlic, and onions. Saute for a few minutes and then add the peppers. Saute a few minutes more and then add the tomatoes. Once they start bubbling, bring the heat down to medium and simmer for about 10-15 minutes. Add the zucchini, eggplant, red wine, chile pepper, half the basil/cilantro and other herbs. Stir and cook for another 5-10 minutes until you get a consistency that you like. It should be somewhat thick but still soupy enough to put in a bowl. If you need to, add cornstarch (first mix with a little cold water, then add). Finally, add salt, pepper, sugar, and the rest of the herbs. Enjoy on its own or over rice, quinoa, or pasta!
