Fire Roasted “Ratatouille”

Nov 21, 2014Posted by Chef BartPrint

ratatouille

Okay so not really a true ratatouille in that you are not stewing the vegetables together but the high heat of the Forno Bravo gives the vegetables a great sear and roasted flavor. I’ve also taken liberties from the classic and added fennel, one of my favorites, for some extra depth. You do not need to be fancy with this one, let your knife and the shape of the vegetable be your inspiration. Do your best to keep the cuts the same size so that they cook evenly.

Enjoy … until next week feast well!
