Ratatouille

A typical French dish which I use as a side dish but can be a meal in itself

Method

Heat the frying pan with the Fry Light low to medium heat.
In the meantime slice all vegetables.
Add the onion and aubergine (take the longest), fry for ten minutes, only to soften, not to brown.
Add the peppers and courgette.
Fry all for another 15 min. until all vegetables have softened and add the tomato and cook for another 5 min. until all juices have disappeared.

Add the herbs and salt and pepper to taste

Hints 'n' Tips

You really should add a tin of chopped toamtoes, I prefer them freshly added at almost the end.
Also, the given times will leave your vegetables with a bit of bite left. If you prefer them softer continue cooking.
