A beautiful fresh and summery dish with courgettes, aubergines, lots of tomatoes – simple and so tasty. Served with incredible pan griddled bread.

Jump to Recipe

Beautiful fresh summery flavours–this is such a simple meal, but it’s incredibly delicious.

Courgettes, aubergines, lots of tomatoes and one of my favourite spice/herb combinations–smoked paprika, thyme and cumin. Which I think works particularly well with tomato dishes.

And let’s talk about the pan griddled bread! I used some slightly stale but good quality sourdough. Brushed on some extra virgin olive oil, sprinkled with sea salt flakes, and griddled on each side. Oh my goodness–just so delicious. Dip it in the ratatouille–my idea of heaven.

The tahini dressing adds both creaminess and earthiness to counter the zingy tomato sauce.

Swaps
Chickpeas -not essential but a delicious and sustaining addition. I love adding butter beans as well.
I’ve cheated with the peppers here–but you can use fresh roasted if preferred.
The same goes with the tomatoes–you can use fresh if preferred.
The pan griddled definitely adds an extra level of deliciousness, but of course this is wonderful with some fresh sourdough or flatbreads.
