Recipe: Ratatouille

By The Paleo Diet Team
February 28, 2014

This Paleo-friendly favorite works well as a main dish, side dish, or even a filling for an omega 3-omelet. Ratatouille is a traditional french dish that has many different ways of preparation. It can be left essentially as a soup style dish, with the juices from the vegetables making up a delicious savory broth; some chefs prefer to drain the broth out and then bake in a covered pan until it thickens, and some do a in-between variation that turns out much like the consistency of stew.


Serves 6

  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 T. olive oil
  • 2 green peppers, seeded and cut into strips
  • 1 lb. sliced zucchini
  • 1 lb. diced eggplant
  • 1 large tomatoes, skinned and wedged
  • 3 T. fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper


1. Sauté onions and garlic in olive oil until tender

2. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil

3. Reduce heat, cover, and let simmer until vegetables are tender (about 30-45 min.)
