Add capsicums and cook, stirring, for 5–6 minutes, or until golden and tender.
2 Add canned tomatoes and red wine vinegar, and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add eggplant and courgettes and simmer for a further 10 minutes. Season with cracked black pepper, to taste.
Serve with brown rice or grainy bread. Add a poached egg, if you like or turn it into one of these delicious recipes:
Homemade shakshuka pizza with sumac
Pasta with hot smoked salmon, ratatouille and ricotta
This double quantity of ratatouille makes enough to make all three of these recipes. The homemade pizza uses half of the base ratatouille recipe, and the parmigiana and pasta recipes each use one-quarter of the ratatouille. Ratatouille can be frozen until ready to use later on.

I made this full recipe even though I live alone. I’ve used it three times in the last three days and each time it was different. Yesterday I made 2 portions of the Portuguese chicken recipe. Tonight I combined three very small boiled potatoes with a portion of the ratatouille and a potion of the chicken. I topped it with sliced home made mozzarella and grilled it. It was absolutely delicious.
This ratatouille recipe will be a regular for me as will the Portuguese chicken. I’m now going to try freezing a couple of portions of the ratatouille.
I have made many ratatouilles over time but this recipe is the best base one I have come across.
It was great for several meals for two of us.
I absolutely recommend this recipe before launching into variations with say all colours of capsicums and some chilli.
