This fresh vegan ratatouille dish will take you to a sunny day in the Mediterranean and remind you of why we love these simple ingredients so much!


  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 heads of red onion, finely sliced
  • 2 ½ cups of tomato passata (or tomato sauce)
  • 1 medium sized eggplant
  • 1 medium sized zucchini
  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 2 plum tomatoes
  • A few sprigs of fresh thyme
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 slices of lemon, for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  2. In a saucepan, add olive oil and cook the finely chopped garlic with half a head of red onion (finely sliced).
  3. After 2 minutes, add the tomato passata (or tomato sauce) and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Let the sauce simmer for 3-4 minutes and add the little leaves from a sprig of fresh thyme. This will be your base for the ratatouille.
  5. Spread the sauce evenly on the bottom of a round casserole dish.
  6. Slice the vegetables very thin, about a fifth of an inch, or even thinner if desired.
  7. Arrange sliced vegetables in circles as shown in the photo and season with salt and pepper. 
  8. Cook in the oven at 350 Fahrenheit for 30-40 minutes.
  9. Garnish with fresh lemon slices and a sprig of thyme, and enjoy!
