Mel makes Natacha’s Local Ratatouille

Submitted by on April 30, 2015 – 8:04 pm

Kiwis eating food grown and produced within a 200 km radius for 30 days of April in the Happyzine Eat Local Challenge.


I found a rogue zucchini in the garden and had a very wrinkled eggplant in the frig that needed using so picked some capsicums and set to making Natacha’s ratatouille from an earlier blog. I have always wanted to make ratatouille that doesn’t turn into a mush and never thought of cooking all the elements separately and then adding them to the already reduced tomatoes.  So thank you Natacha!
