To walk out into my garden and pick most of what we will have for dinner gives me so much joy. The garden is on the verge of bursting with eggplant, zucchini, okra, peppers, tomatoes and onions. Sounds like grilled ratatouille to me!
It’s a bit too hot for cooking indoors, so this meal needed to be grilled.
To make, wash and slice the vegetables, brush with avocado oil, and sprinkle with sea salt and pepper.
Then just grill until soft, with just a touch of crispness left, and then chop and toss the grilled vegetables with crushed garlic, olive oil, wine vinegar and fresh-from-the-garden chopped basil, parsley and oregano.
We sprinkled some parmesan on top and sat down to enjoy. We were eating food that had been in the garden less than a half hour earlier. It can’t get any fresher than that!
Ratatouille can be time consuming to make, but not this recipe for grilled ratatouille. And it’s fresh from the garden delicious!
