Roasted ratatouille recipe

This roasted ratatouille is packed full of flavour. Somehow when you bake, rather than cook it in a saucepan, the flavours become more intense. Find more on Kidspot NZ



  • 1 red capsicum, roughly sliced
  • 1 eggplant, roughly diced
  • 2 zucchinis, roughly diced
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 1 x tin (400g) chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 x tin (400g) chickpeas, drained
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


Preheat the oven to 180°C or 160°C fan-forced. Combine all ingredients except for the olive oil in a large bowl, mixing really well.

Tip this into a baking dish, drizzle with the olive oil and season to taste.

Bake in the oven for 45 minutes, tossing everything around a little half way through. Serve with Turkish bread.


  • This ratatouille is the perfect dish for vegetarian friends.
  • I like to add whatever vegetables I have in the fridge if I don't have these exact ingredients.
  • Make sure you use the very best olive oil you have for this recipe because it really makes a difference. And don't skip the seasoning - it's essential.
