Eggplants, baby courgettes, thyme and basil from the garden. Tomatoes, peppers and garlic from Elsewhere. Add a little water, a little more olive oil, season, cover and cook in oven till soft, about 45 minutes.
If you uncover them to brown up a bit at high heat, do not forget them in the oven, like I did. They ended up as crispy little nibbles. So they became a roast lamb garnish, instead. Not exactly what I had intended. But no one knew. I guess now they do.
There is a proper recipe for ratatouille at 66 Square Feet (the Food).
