OK, I know making ratatouille is not really baking. However, it is vegan and it is gluten free. It’s also quite delicious! My daughter had been bugging me about making ratatouille ever since the movie came out. I went on the internet (of course) and found lots of recipes. The one I chose was beautiful and easy. Here’s the link to Ratatouille’s Ratatouille. I have to admit I didn’t have a mandoline, so went to Wal-Mart and got one for $20. Be forewarned, the blade is very sharp! I cut myself washing it.
I didn’t have any ‘tomato puree’, so just threw some tomatoes from my yard into a blender and hit the puree button. I also put minced garlic on the bottom, not sliced garlic cloves. I happened to have a jar of minced garlic in my fridge. I got a Chinese eggplant from the grocery store – it’s thin like a zucchini.
I also have to admit that the picture is not from me. I found it on Google, but it looks very similar to the one I made. We ate all ours before I realized I should have taken a picture!
We sprinkled it with some shredded cheese (not vegan, I know) and ate it with some fresh French bread. YUMMY!
