Oven-Roasted Ratatouille


Does ratatouille give you that warm sense of comfort? It sure does for me! I grew up watching my mom make different varieties of ratatouille, so there is definitely a reminder of home in this dish. Always full of love, flavor and most likely all your vegetables that were about to go bad. Makes great leftovers!

Serves: 3-4


  • 1 medium-large red onion, cut into 8 wedges
  • 1 large eggplant, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 medium-large zucchini, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 medium-large yellow squash, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 4 plum tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 cup crimini mushrooms, quartered
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeds removed, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 4 cloves garlic; chopped
  • ¼ cup Kalamata olives, pitted
  • ½ cup canned or jarred artichoke hearts, quartered
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon thyme (or 1 teaspoon dried)
  •  ½ tablespoon fresh rosemary (or ½ teaspoon dried)
  • ½  sesame or pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup roughly chopped flat-leaf (Italian parsley)


In a large baking dish, toss together all ingredients except sesame or pumpkin seeds and Italian parsley. 

Top with sesame seeds or pumpkin seeds (½ cup) and roast the mixture in an oven that has been preheated to 400°F for 35 to 40 minutes, or until veggies are tender.

Toss with ¼ cup roughly chopped flat-leaf (Italian) parsley. This is a perfect meal to end the day with and also can serve alongside roasted chicken or protein of choice.
