Ratatouille, as you may already know, thanks to a very talented little chef mouse, is a classic French dish that is packed with the flavors of fresh vegetables. The combination of eggplant, zucchini, bell peppers, and tomatoes gives Ratatouille a rich and flavorful taste. This delicious dish comes together in just 40 minutes, which makes it yet another wonderful plant-based weeknight dinner. It goes well with crusty bread or over a bed of rice or pasta.
