A friend of mine recently recommended this ROASTED VEGGIE RATATOUILLE recipe and since we have most of the ingredients in our garden, I can't wait to try it out!

Makes 10 cups

Capers give this vegetarian side dish just the right tangy touch. Spoon the ratatouille over steamed brown rice, if desired (or on a crusty bread roll).


1 pound eggplant, 1/2-inch dice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 pound zucchini, 1-inch dice
1 pound yellow squash, 1-inch dice
1/2 pound yellow onion, 1-inch diced
1/2 pound red bell pepper, 1-inch dice
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 pound Roma tomatoes, 1-inch dice
2 tablespoons minced fresh garlic
3 tablespoons minced fresh oregano
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 ounces baby nonpareil capers, drained


Preheat oven to 400°F. Dice eggplant first. Combine with salt, set aside in a colander to drain. Prepare remaining ingredients. Combine tomatoes, garlic, oregano and black pepper, set aside. Combine eggplant, squash, onion and bell pepper, with olive oil. Place in roasting pan. Bake 45 minutes, stir once during cooking. Stir in tomato mixture, bake 20 minutes. Stir in capers.
