Why yes, I made Ratatouille. It was delicious. My family devoured it in seconds. Successful? Duh! And to answer your next question.. Of course I will share the recipe with you! :)
But first, I have some news!! I got a Nikon D3200 camera!! Happy (Late) Birthday to me! I was super excited to open that box. It was awesome and I love my camera. I will now get to bring you wonderful images of yummy food. YES!
Is it just me or do you ever find yourself just looking at the pictures of food rather than looking for that recipe you had intended to look for in the first place? I find myself doing that pretty much everyday and let me tell you, I find some really amazing pictures. I just sit there saying to myself “I want to take pictures like that…. I hope I can make my pictures that beautiful…” etc etc. I’ll spare you the pity. haha. So with that said, you will now be joining me not only in my (interesting?) life adventures but also as I play around with my camera and share with you the pictures that give way to an adventure themselves. EXCITEMENT!!!
Alrighty, Recipe time :)
Serves 5-6 People
2 yellow squash
4 roma tomatoes
4 garlic cloves
1/2 red onion
2 celery stalks
1 1/2 T tomato paste
water (add to the thickness that you would like)
salt and pepper to taste
1 t coconut oil
-Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
-Mince garlic, chop onion and celery. Heat coconut oil in a pan, add garlic, onion and celery and cook until translucent.
-Meanwhile, thinly slice the eggplant, squash, zucchini and tomato.
-Once your sauce is done pour in the bottom of your oven-safe pan. Layer on your vegetables, I did zucchini, yellow squash, eggplant and tomato.. repeat, repeat, repeat!! until you go in a circle and completely fill the pan. Top with Salt and Pepper and sprinkle over the Italian seasoning. Voila!
-Bake until tender, mine cooked about 25-30 minutes. But then again I cooked it in a cast iron skillet I had preheated. Also I cooked them uncovered the first 15 minutes and then covered them to steam them a little the last 10 minutes.
—-You can also top this off with cheese and then broil it to make it GBD! (Golden Brown and Delicious :) )
I hope you enjoy!
