Easy Baked Ratatouille (vegan) / Lagani zapečeni Ratatouille (veganski)

The summer veggies are abundant and delicious and I really enjoy preparing seasonal dishes when all flavours are enhanced to the max. This summer staple dish will definitely go into regular rotation, even despite the fact that I need to turn up my oven to prepare it.

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Wash, peel and chop up all the veggies. Place a skillet on high heat, then fry up on olive oil the onion, peppers, eggplant, zucchini and garlic until slightly caramelized. Work in small batches and season the veggies with salt and pepper as you go, adding in more oil as needed.

Transfer the fried veggies into a baking tray. Roughly dice or crush the Roma tomatoes and add them to your veggies together with tomato puree, thyme and oregano. Mix everything well to combine, even out, then bake for 1 hour, until bubbly and thickened. Allow the Ratatouille to rest for about 10 minutes before serving. You can basically eat it with whatever you like, being it a nice piece of bread, rice, pasta and a protein of your choice.

Ljetno je povrće sada prisutno u izobilju i veoma ukusno, a ja baš volim kuhati sezonski jer su onda sve arome i najizraženije. Ovaj će ljetni klasik definitivno ući na moj redovni meni, čak i unatoč činjenici da za njega moram upaliti pećnicu kako bih ga pripremila.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 6,82 po porciji / 27,26 kn za sve)

¼ šalice maslinovog ulja, podijeljena (2,50 kn)

1 žličica soli, podijeljena (0,01 kn)

1 žličica svježe mljevenog crnog papra, podijeljena (0,50 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

2 paprike (3,00 kn)

1 patlidžan (6,00 kn)

1 velika tikvica (3,00 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (1,00 kn)

1 konzerva cijelih pelata (4,50 kn)

2 šalice pasirane rajčice (4,00 kn)

1 žličica timijana – majčine dušice (0,50 kn)

1 žličica origana (0,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. Operite, ogulite i narežite svo povrće. Tavu stavite na jaku vatru, pa na maslinovom ulju kratko popržite luk, paprike, patlidžan, tikvicu i češnjak, samo da se sve blago karamelizira. Povrće pržite u manjim turama te ga začinite solju i paprom dok ga kuhate, a u tavu po potrebi nadodajte ulje.

Svo preprženo povrće preselite u protvan. Pelate grubo narežite ili zgnječite, pa ih skupa sa pasiranom rajčicom, timijanom i origanom dodajte povrću. Dobro sve promiješajte, poravnajte i pecite oko sat vremena dok ne bude bublasto i gusto. Pustite da se Ratatouille ohladi desetak minuta prije nego li ga poslužite. Možete ga jesti sa čime god vam se svidi, bilo da je to neki fini kruh, riža, tjestenina i neki protein po vašem izboru.
