Organic Ratatouille for Organic September 2017
We've been doing our best to go (even) more organic this month. Why? Because it's Organic September,
the Soil Association's campaign to get us all eating (and wearing and using) more organic products to benefit farms and wildlife. (Did you know there's 50% more wildlife on organic farms? 50%!!!)
Obviously we wore our Arthur & Henry organic cotton shirts whilst tucking into this pretty delicious if not entirely authentic organic ratatouille.
First, pick your home grown courgettes
(yes, those tomatoes are hiding in nasturtium leaves and that is a snail trail you can see).
Then pop along to your local amazing greengrocer (or, if you don't happen to have one of those a supermarket would do) and pick up some organic onions, garlic, aubergines and peppers.
Chop everything into cubes. (Well bash or crush the garlic) Roughly one centimetre is a good size. Sling plenteous amounts of olive oil in a large pan. Add the onions, cook till they're see-through, add the garlic. Stir a bit. Sling everything else in. Plus some herbs from the garden - rosemary and thyme. Top up with a bit of water and bring to a simmer.
Pop a lid on and leave for 30 mins or so.
Freakin' delicious. Organic deliciousness. We ate it with couscous. And on its own. Both hot and cold. Would also make a good pasta sauce. Or a side to a roast.
