Ratatouille Origin

Ratatouille originates from Provance, France. Ratatouille is a beautiful vegetable stew that tastes and looks fantastic. Some people take the time to create a rainbow from the vegetables to make it even more magical and vibrant. In Ratatouille, we will find eggplants, zucchini, tomatoes, peppers, and fresh herbs. It's a vegan dish, perfect as a main dish or side dish. The popularity of Ratatouille only increased with the famous Walt Disney movie Ratatouille. In the film, a young rat named is inspired to become a renowned chef.


Store Oven-Roasted Ratatouille in three ways. You can either put it in a fridge or freezer or preserve it in jars for winter. 

Keep any leftovers in an airtight container. Store in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat well.

Transfer the cooked and cooled Oven-Roasted Ratatouille to a freezer bag or airtight container. Seal, then place in the freezer. Keep in the freezer for up to 6 months. Defrost, reheat, and serve.

We can easily preserve the Ratatouille in jars too. Preheat the oven to 100°C / 210°F. Place your jars and lids on a baking sheet and place them in the oven for 15 minutes to sterilize. Pour the vegetable stew into the jars. Set the caps on the jars and close them tightly. Wrap the jars into a kitchen towel and let them cool slowly for about 12 hours. Then store in a cold, dark place for up to a year.
