Grilled Ratatouille

What a whirlwind of a week. I haven’t had much time on here and with my last post well over a week ago, I have some serious catching up to do.

I haven’t had extra time to make the finer things, like planned desserts, but this grilled ratatouille was superb with grilled steak.

Fennel,zucchini,red and yellow peppers,and eggplant make up this delicious combination. Cut vegetables into large pieces and place on grill.

Nothing hard about that, this dish is all in the presentation…after you’ve grilled the vegetables slice into thin strips, leaving the fennel in slices …misto food 016

Arrange in orderly fashion, first the fennel then zucchini and eggplant and finally the colourful red and yellow peppers.

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

3 tablespoons olive oil

zest and juice of 1 lemon

freshly ground pepper

6 capers

2 anchovies

sliced black olives

sprinkle of pine nuts

Finely chop the anchovies and capers and place in mixing jar. Add balsamic vinegar,olive oil, zest and lemon juice,black pepper and mix well.Pour over grilled vegetables with a sprinkling of black olives and pine nuts.

Serve warm of cold as you like.
