I bet you know what I think of every time I hear “Ratatouille.”
Yup. The Pixar movie of the same name.
I wanted to make a meal prep-friendly Ratatouille for awhile.
It’s the perfect veggie side to go with a carb and protein. And I can’t turn down a dish that’s packed with flavor simple ingredients and takes under an hour to whip up.
Like most of my favorite meal preps, Ratatouille is versatile.
My recipe includes tomato, yellow squash, zucchini and yellow onion. You could easily throw in sweet potato, eggplant, carrots and more.
Truth be told, I picked these ingredients because I knew they would be gorgeous (and I also hate eggplant).
I layered my veggie mixture to look pretty, which took an extra five minutes, but I think it was worth it.
This dish can be served alone as part of a larger meal or divided into different preps. You can get about four servings out of this recipe for the average person, but if you tend to eat more then it will be about three servings.
I put parmesan cheese on mine, but this could easily work with breadcrumbs as a replacement just for a little extra texture.
As always, this meal can be stored in the fridge for up to four or five days in an airtight container. Because it’s roasted squash, I would try to eat it all within four days.
