Ratatouille with Curry

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"With an abundance of zucchini from the garden in the summer, our family collected many recipes while I was growing up. This one has been in our family for about 40 years and is a favorite to eat cold as a snack on some great crunchy chips or crackers. The addition of the cider vinegar and curry powder makes this recipe completely different from the traditional French version."

  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir eggplant, zucchini, onion, celery, and red bell pepper until tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Add cider vinegar, tomato paste, garlic, curry powder, salt, and oregano; simmer until liquid is slightly reduced, 5 to 10 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Eliminating the eggplant and doubling the zucchini works wonderfully.
  • This freezes quite well too, although it may become a bit watery and require stirring upon thawing.
  • Substitute tomato sauce for the tomato paste, if desired. Simmer time will be longer.

I am the submitter for this recipe, and I am not sure what happened- but this copy is different from the one I submitted! The photo is different, and the amount of cider vinegar should only be ...

Glad I read the submitter'S correction. Half cup of vinegar spoils this recipe. I used zucchini and yellow squash. If I make it again I will double the curry. I like curry.

Before I read your post on the vinager I choose to cut it in half. I love curry so I added more! I believe any veggies would make this excellent. Served it over basmati rice. Yum

I made this solely with eggplant and did not add bell pepper. However, the dish was just way too vinegery for my taste. I do not plan on making this dish again.

This is yummy! I will use less vinegar (or perhaps some that's not expired!) to appease the pallets of my household, but this is a GREAT way to get my boys to eat lots of veggies!! We add turkey...
