Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium red onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed

  • 1 medium zucchini cubed - about ½ inch dice
  • 1 large red bell pepper cubed
  • 14 ounce diced tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven, on the grill setting, at 400°F / 200°C.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat.
  • Add the diced red onion, and sauté for about three minutes, until just translucent.
  • Add the crushed garlic, and sauté for about two minutes more.
  • Add the diced eggplant, zucchini, and red pepper, along with the oregano, paprika, salt, and pepper.
  • Sauté the vegetables for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Add the diced tomatoes, and stir to combine with the vegetables.
  • Allow this mixture to simmer over medium heat for 15 minutes, stirring frequently.

Notes

  • Nutrition values are an estimate only
  • If you get all the chopping done up front, this Baked Halloumi dish comes together really quickly. Be sure to chop all of the veggies in a uniform size so that they cook at the same rate. 
  • Want to prep this dish in advance? You've got options! 
    Option 1: Do all the chopping in advance, and then spend 20 minutes making dinner when you're ready. 
    Option 2: Cook the ratatouille, and then refrigerate the whole thing until you're ready for dinner. If you go this route I recommend quickly re-heating the ratatouille on the stove top (it'll take about 5 minutes) and then adding the halloumi and proceeding as usual. 
    Option 3: Cook the whole thing in advance and then re-heat when you're ready to serve. You can re-heat it in the oven with a lid on (you don't want to re-brown the halloumi) or heat individual servings in the microwave. 
  • If you can't get your hands on halloumi, you could replace it with slabs of feta, which would also be delicious. For a vegan option, replace the halloumi with slabs of seasoned tofu.
