1 Pan Vegan Ratatouille
This 1 Pan Vegan Ratatouille, piled high with veggies and tomato, is an easy yet mouth-watering take on the French classic.
Before launching the 21 Day Vegetarian Reset this week, the tulip-man and I went through the program ourselves to nab little problems lurking in shadows. One such problem, which must have been lurking in the shadows my whole life as a result of a true disdain for tomatoes, came in the form of tomato cravings. Seriously, so intense tomato cravings. Who was this new tomato-seeking me? And more importantly, how could I go about buying all the tomatoes?
I promptly found a way to work loads of tomato goodness into the reset program via this ratatouille! It’s loaded with lycopene, full of fiber, and may just be my new go-to “fancy with little effort” recipe. The cook time is a bit longer than most of the 21 Day Vegetarian Reset recipes, with most hovering around 30 minutes, but it pretty well exemplifies what I created the reset to be: simple, mouth-watering, plant-based goodness.
1 Pan Vegan Ratatouille
- 1 15-oz can crushed tomatoes 425 g
- 2 Tbsp olive oil 30 mL, divided
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 Tbsp fresh Basil chopped
- 1 tsp Herbs de Provence or 1/4 tsp rosemary, 1/4 tsp oregano, 1/2 tsp thyme
- 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1 large white onion
- 1 zucchini
- 1 eggplant
- 3 roma tomatoes
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (176 C).
- Add crushed tomatoes, 1 Tbsp oil, garlic, basil, herbs, pepper flakes, salt, and pepper to a 9x6 inch (23x15 cm) baking pan. Stir to combine.
- Slice onion, zucchini, eggplant, and tomatoes into 1/4 inch thick slices. If some slices are wider than others, you can cut them in half so they’ll all be the same height when stacked.
- Layer sliced veggies on top of the tomato mixture, standing them straight up in alternating layers.
- Brush veggies with 1 Tbsp olive oil and bake for 1 hour, or until veggies are tender.
