215 calories per serve

Preheat oven to 160 degrees celsius. In a large casserole dish place the eggplant, zucchini, minced garlic, and diced pumpkin with a lug of olive oil. Saute the vegetables for 5 – 7 minutes.

Add the passata, tomatoes and water, then transfer to the 160 degree celsius preheated oven. Leave to cook for an hour and a half, stirring occasionally, making sure it’s not catching and vegetables are cooking evenly. Gage whether the dish needs to be covered with foil or a lid to stop the Ratatouille from drying out. Near the end of the cooking time, mix through the chickpeas. Serve with flat leaf parsley and a little ground unbleached sea salt. You can leave the Ratatouille covered in the oven, on very low to keep it warm until ready to serve.

*This recipe is also brilliant to use in your slow cooker. Adjust the 1 and a half hour cooking time to 8 hours on a low setting on your crock pot/slow cooker.
