1 small eggplant (1 lb) -chopped in small squares
3 medium zucchinis (1 lb) –chopped in small squares
1 medium onion (1/2 lb) –thinly hopped
4 medium tomatoes (1lb)- peeled and grossly chopped
2 garlic cloves -crushed
1 tbsp dry parsley
2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground pepper
6 tbs olive oil
3 tbsp water
Sauté onion in pan with 1 tbsp olive oil until translucent and golden brown. Set aside.
In large pan, sauté eggplant and zucchinis with 4 tbsp olive oil for about 8 minutes. Add 3 tbsp water and cover with lid. Cook for about 12 minutes. Then add the last tbsp oil and sauté vegetables again for 5 minutes.
Add the tomatoes, garlic, parsley, salt, pepper, stir well and cook an extra 5 minutes.
Tip: *to easily peel tomatoes, place them in boiling water for about 3 minutes. Their skin should pull off very easily, but be careful, the tomatoes can be hot to handle.
*ratatouille is also a great pasta dressing.
Finishing touch: decorate with fresh parsley.
