This French Provincial meal is easy, cheap, and keeps well. Ratatouille is great for breakfast, lunch or dinner – alongside some soft poached eggs, or with some grilled chicken, a steak, or some beans. 

1 red capsicum (pepper)
1 red onion
2 cloves garlic
1 zucchini
1 eggplant
A cup of mushrooms
2 tomatoes
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon chilli flakes
A pinch of salt
A crack of black pepper
A splash of olive oil

Peel and dice the onion into chunks. Peel and crush the garlic. Cut the capsicum, zucchini, eggplant, mushrooms and tomatoes into chunks.

Heat a pan with the oil and add the onion. Saute for a few minutes until soft. Add the garlic, paprika, chilli, salt and pepper, and fry for a couple more minutes. Add the tomatoes and saute for a few minutes. Add the capsicum, zucchini and mushroom and cook for about 10 minutes, until the vegetables are cooked through. Taste for seasoning. Serve as it is, or with some poached eggs for breakfast, or tossed through some zucchini noodles, or on the side of some meat or chicken.
