Ratatouille Ingredients

The main ingredients you'll need:

  • 1 pound/500 gms ground beef
  • 1 medium sized aubergine or egg plant
  • 2 onions
  • 2 large bell peppers or capsicums
  • 4 eggs
  • Delicious herbs - they really add depth of flavor
  • For the seasoning, go to the recipe

Here's How To Put Together
The Ratatouille

Toss the meat, garlic and onions in a non-stick pot and fry till the meat is browned.

While the meat is cooking, work quickly and chop up the vegetables, starting with the egg plant.

Toss them into the pot when diced, adding the bell peppers last of all.

See in the picture, how the ground beef and veg are tossed together.

Now, eggplant sucks up moisture so it'll need a tablespoon of oil to combine it and keep it all moving. Then add seasoning, loads of herbs and water.  Stir to combine the flavors.

Toss in the can of diced tomatoes including the liquid.

Turn down the heat to simmer, cover with the lid and cook for about 15 minutes till the sauce thickens.

Do a taste test and adjust the seasoning as suits you.

When the sauce is thickened and the eggplant nice and soft, decant half into an oven proof casserole dish.

Use a spoon to make 4 indentations and crack an egg into each hollow, just like in the photo.

Bake till the eggs are cooked just as you like them. We like our yolks cooked, so I left them in the oven for 25 minutes. A lesser time is required if you like your yolks runny.
