Slow Cooked Ratatouille is a lovely French recipe that is perfect both hot and cold. The simple combination creates a beautiful vegetarian side dish full of flavour and colour. I serve this with pan fried cod for a warm dish and with warm bread for a cold dish. Both are perfect.

  • Place a non stick frying pan over a high heat and add 2 tablespoons of the oil.
  • When hot, add the aubergine and fry for about 5 minutes until browned on all sides.
  • Remove from the pan and place on a warmed plate until needed.
  • Add a further 1/3rd of the oil and add the onions. Fry until lightly browned (about 3 – 4 minutes). Stir continuously to make sure nothing sticks.
  • When browned, add the garlic and fry for another minute. Don not burn the garlic.
  • Add the onions and garlic to the slow cooker. Add the chopped peppers, tin of tomatoes, courgettes, sugar, oregano, puree and bay leaf and gently mix.
  • Add the final 1/3rd of the oil to the slow cooker with a good pinch of salt and ground pepper. Stir again.
  • Carefully add the aubergine chunks to the top of the mixture but don’t stir. They aubergine is delicate and will turn to mush if too heavy handed.
  • Add the lid to the slow cooker and cook on high for 4 hours.
  • When ready, taste and adjust the seasoning if required.
