“I made this into an appetizer for New Year's Eve and it was a huge hit! I also had enough leftover ratatouille for a side dish the next day. This is a great, easy and healthy recipe. It is very versatile: adjust the veggies to your liking, make into an appetizer (see directions and note below), enjoy as a vegan main dish or serve as a side. *Oh, I just thought of another great idea, you could serve this over pasta...yum! **Please do look at my extra notes about olive oil amount and cooking time for the veggies. Both are personal preference and I noted what I like to do.**”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, cook for 2 minutes. Add yellow and orange bell peppers and cook for another 2 minutes. Add zucchini, yellow squash and eggplant and cook for 2 more minutes. Add garlic, tomato, salt and pepper and cook for about 1 minute.
  2. Note: I like to continue cooking all the veggies for several more minutes. It's a personal thing, I like my ratatoullie veggies really soft and like letting the flavors meld together.
  3. Note: You may need to add some additional olive oil as you add more veggies. This depends on the size of your veggies and your personal preference. I usually do add a tablespoon or two more as I cook out the veggies.
  4. To make into an appetizer:
  5. Spoon ratatouille into the mini phyllo cups and bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for about 8 minutes, or until heated through.
  6. Note: you could also choose to fist put in a bit of boursin cheese into the phyllo tart first, then add the ratatouille on top and bake as directed.
