Ratatouille is maybe the most popular French recipe abroad. Originated in Nice, one of the most beautiful cities of the Southern region of Provence, ratatouille is chopped vegetables cooked in a French oven together with oil and herbs. This aromatic dish is very low calorie but has lot of flavor.

Also, it’s a perfect dish to prepare when you want to empty your fridge of vegetables that need using. You can, indeed, use almost anything in ratatouille. All you have to do is to be mindful of the different cooking times of vegetables and roots, so everything is evenly cooked.

To prepare it, start with slicing and dicing all the vegetables. Keep the tomatoes aside. Then, heat the olive oil with the spices in a French oven. Add the tomatoes and the roots (carrots and all the vegetables that take longer to cook). Cook for 5 minutes, then add the rest of the vegetables and mix. Transfer the pot to a pre-heated oven, and cook for 40 minutes, uncovered.

Take the out out of the oven, mix again, and cover with a lid. Set aside for 15 minutes, then serve.
