eggplant a la Francaise (Ratatouille)


I found this delicious recipe from one of the Paleo Recipe Books (can’t remember which one though). Love this dish!

French cooking Paleo style is quick, simple and delicious.  This is veggie dish takes only minutes to prepare, which makes it an ideal recipe for the busy cook.   Serves 4

Ingredients:

4 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 large zucchini, cut into 2 x 1/2 inch strips
1 red bell pepper cut into 2 x 1/2 inch strips
1 green bell pepper cut into 2 x 1/2 inch strips
1 eggplant cut into 2 x 1/2 inch strips and chopped
2 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 bay leaf
fresh parsley to taste
salt to taste
Preparations: 
Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a cast iron skillet over medium flame.  Add chopped onion and saute for 5 minutes.  Toss in garlic and continue to saute for one minute.  Place zucchini in skillet, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes.  Pour into a bowl and set aside.
Add another tablespoon of the oil and bell pepper to skillet.  Saute for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Remove from skillet and set aside.  Brush the last tablespoon of oil evenly over eggplant and plain skillet.  Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Place zucchini and peppers back in skillet with the eggplant.  Mix in tomato, bay leaf, and parsley.  Cover and cook for 10 minutes.
