Ratatouille soup, with long grain brown rice, fresh basil and grated parmesan. My take on the classic ratatouille is a chunky, healthy, tasty soup that’s simple to make and the leftovers keep well in the fridge. Ratatouille is a French vegetable stew from Provence typically consisting of onions, zucchini, tomatoes, eggplant, garlic and peppers. I hope you enjoy this delicious dish!

  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large onion  (diced)
  • 4 garlic cloves (smashed)
  • kosher salt to taste
  • 1 small eggplant (diced)
  • 1 small zucchini (diced)
  • 1 8 oz package of mushrooms (chopped)
  • 1 yellow bell pepper (diced)
  • 1 28 oz can whole tomatoes (crushed)
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable stock (divided)
  • 1 handful fresh basil leaves (torn)
  • 1 cup parmesean cheese (grated)
  • 1 cup white or brown rice


  • In a large pot on medium-high heat, add olive oil, onion and garlic. Cook until soft about 3 minutes.
  • Add seasonings, eggplant, zucchini, bell pepper and sauté for 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, 2 cups stock and ½ the basil. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
  • In a small saucepan, cook the rice in the remaining 2 cups of stock for 20 minutes.
  • Serve rice and soup in a shallow bowl and garnish with grated parmesan, fresh basil and a sprinkle of cajun seasoning.


Pro-Tip: Use the highest quality canned tomatoes you can find. San Marzano tomatoes are a perfect choice as they are sweet, have low acidity and are a deep beautiful red color. Fire roasted tomatoes would be good too.
