After placing our orders, the waitress returned with a tiny bowl of ratatouille. She explained that her grandmother made the ratatouille for the cafe, and though we did not order it, she thought we would like to try a few bites.
It was my first time trying ratatouille, and I still remember how delicious the stew was with a delicate thyme flavor.
Back here in America, I have found it difficult to find ratatouille in restaurants. Though it is a fairly simple stew of garden fresh vegetables, it simply isn’t popular here in America.
I had a craving for ratatouille a few weeks ago, and I realized the only way I was going to eat some was if I made it myself! Luckily, thanks to my slow cooker and America’s Test Kitchen, I was able to cook a giant pot of ratatouille.
This is a great recipe to make when you have a busy week. Ratatouille is incredibly healthy (vegan!), and it pairs well with eggs, chickpeas, and chicken. Z and I like to eat our ratatouille with toast and fried eggs.
