Veg Sheet-Pan Ratatouille

Ingredients:

Eggplant: Cubed or sliced into rounds, eggplant forms a spongy, meaty base.
Zucchini: Sliced into rounds or half-moons, zucchini adds a soft texture.
Yellow Squash: Similar to zucchini, it provides additional color and texture variation.
Bell Peppers: Red, yellow, or green bell peppers, cut into strips, offer a sweet crunch.
Tomatoes: Cherry tomatoes or sliced larger tomatoes contribute juiciness and a rich flavor.
Onion: Sliced or chopped onions add a sharp, aromatic element.
Garlic: Minced or whole cloves, essential for their robust flavor.
Olive Oil: Generously drizzled over the vegetables to aid in roasting and flavor enhancement.
Herbs: Fresh thyme, rosemary, and basil, finely chopped, infuse the dish with herbal notes.
Salt and Pepper: For seasoning.

Instructions:

Preheat the Oven: Set your oven to 400°F (200°C) to ensure it’s hot enough for roasting.

Prepare the Vegetables: Wash and cut all the vegetables into uniform pieces to ensure even cooking. Spread them out on a large sheet pan.

Season the Vegetables: Drizzle the vegetables with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and your choice of herbs. Add the minced garlic evenly over the top.

Roast: Place the sheet pan in the oven and roast for about 35-45 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender and lightly caramelized.

Final Touches: Once removed from the oven, toss the vegetables with additional fresh herbs like chopped basil for a burst of freshness.

Serving Suggestions:

Sheet-Pan Ratatouille can be served as a main dish with crusty bread or over cooked grains like quinoa or rice. It also makes a wonderful side dish to complement grilled meats or fish for a more substantial meal. The leftovers are equally delicious, as the flavors continue to meld and deepen when stored in the refrigerator.

This dish not only showcases the simplicity and health benefits of Mediterranean cooking but also highlights the versatility and ease of using a sheet pan to create a meal that is both nutritious and delicious.
