  • 2 Japanese Eggplants, chopped into 1" pieces*
  • 2 Medium Zucchini, chopped into 1" pieces
  • 1 15.5 oz can of Chickpeas or white beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 Medium Red or Yellow Peppers, chopped
  • 2~3 Medium Roma or Vine-ripe Tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 Medium Onion, chopped
  • 1 Medium Shallot, thinly sliced
  • 4 Garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ cup Olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Balsamic vinegar
  • teaspoons Dried Thyme or use 2 teaspoons fresh thyme
  • To Taste Salt and Pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Combine olive oil, balsamic vinegar, thyme, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  • Add all the chopped vegetables (eggplant, zucchini, pepper, onion, shallot, tomatoes, garlic and beans) into a roasting pan or a casserole pan.
  • Pour the dressing over the vegetables and mix well to combine. Roast the vegetables for 20 minutes, stir the vegetables and return to the oven for another 20~30 minutes or until the veggies are very tender.
  • Remove from the oven, taste and adjust the seasoning. Serve warm or at room temperature.


  • Alternately use a small globe eggplant.
  • Substitute dried thyme with fresh thyme.
  • All ovens are different and so you might have to roast the veggies for a little longer or shorter. Please use the baking times in the recipe as guidelines.
  • Add other vegetables like sweet potato, winter squash or broccoli.
  • If you like the browned charred parts of roasted veggies, then briefly set the oven to high broil. Then broil for 2~4 minutes, keeping a close eye.
  • Serve over brown rice, quinoa, or other whole grains or toast. It is also great to serve as chunky pasta sauce.
  • Store leftover ratatouille in the fridge for 2~3 days or frozen for up to 2 months.
