This is the end of the summer or rather the beginning of the fall and summer squash still abound in the gardens so why not ?!
To change a bit of the ratatouille classic, I have created a ratatouille of zucchini with carrots, tomatoes and mint, to eat hot or cold depending on your mood.
Ratatouille of zucchini
Ingredients (for 4)
- 5-6 small zucchini
- 4 tomatoes
- 2 large carrots
- 1 large onion
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1/2 bunch of fresh mint
- 1 pinch of chilli powder
- A drizzle of olive oil
- Salt and pepper
Wash and cut all vegetables into small cubes.
Pour a drizzle of olive oil in a casserole and sauté over low heat the chopped onion and the cloves of chopped garlic. Then add the other vegetables except tomatoes, stir well and let it cook for 5 min.
Add the tomatoes, chilli and then season to taste.
Cook over a low heat and cover for 30-35 minutes.
Snip the mint and add it when the cooking is completed.
