The Big Glut Recipe - September

End of Summer Ratatouille

Easy peasy (no peas though) with fresh veg from the garden if you grow them but no worry, buy them if you don’t.


  • 2 onions
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 aubergine 
  • 1 courgette or more if small
  •  2 green peppers
  •  8 small tomatoes
  •  2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  •  3 sprigs fresh thyme
  •  olive oil
  •  salt and coarse black pepper

Heat the oven to 180º. Peel and slice the onions and garlic. Wash and slice the remaining vegetables. Put them all in an ovenproof dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil and toss the veg in it. Cover the dish with foil and bake at 180º for 45 minutes. Remove from the oven, remove the foil, bake for another 30 to 45 minutes until deep golden brown. Serve with pasta or cold meat cuts, on its own, as you like it. Told you it was easy.
