RATATOUILLE RECIPE MODIFIED

It's important to show how
to modified a recipe
with what you have in the pantry.
Get ingredients that are close enough
to recreate a recipe is the key.
In this case I took
Ratatouille by Martha Stewart Recipe
to show you how I modified it
to what I have in my pantry.

HERE IS MARTHA STEWART VERSION


Martha Stewart One Pot Ratatouille Recipe Ingredients

1 Can 28 oz Whole Tomatoes Peeled
6 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 Eggplant Dice into 1 inch cube
1 1/2 Teaspoon Coarse Salt
2 Onions Dice
1 head Garlic Clove (smashed and peeled)
2 Bell Pepper Seeded and Dice
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 Large Zucchini (Dice)
1 Bay Leaf
2 Sprigs Oregano
2-3 Tablespoon of Red Wine

JACKIE'S MODIFIED RATATOUILLE RECIPE

6 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 Eggplant Dice
1 Egg
1/2 Cup of Bread Crumb
1/4 Cup Vegetable Oil
1 Onion Dice

1 12 oz Roasted Red Pepper 
 (drain, chopped)

Pour the 1 can 28 oz Dice Tomatoes into a baking 
casserole prep with non stick spray
add 2 Tablespoon of olive oil
Place in a preheated 350 degree oven

(Martha Stewart Version you have to break the whole tomatoes
add olive oil bake for 30 minutes in the same oven temperature)

One eggplant cut into dice add salt and pepper
drain in a colander
let it sit for 20 minutes
and squeeze out the excess water.
Add into the egg mixture
and Bread crumb
Fried into a sauteed pan with 1/4 cup of 
Vegetable Oil
Until golden brown drain and set aside

(Martha Stewart Version cut the eggplant into 1 inch cube
and the rest the same)

In a pot add 4 tablespoon of olive 
1 onion dice and 2 garlic clove slice
cook until translucent.
Add the 1 12 oz Roasted Pepper drain and roughly chopped
Season 1 teaspoon sea salt and fresh ground pepper.
Add the cook Dice Tomatoes
Cook Bread Crumb Dice Egg Plant
 and  One Zucchini Slice
1 Bay leaf
1 Teaspoon of Dried Thyme
Cook  on medium to high stirring occasionally 
Until mixture comes to a simmer
reduce heat partially cover
cook until veggies are tender
about 15 minutes
add
2 Tablespoon of Vegetable Broth
1 Teaspoon of Sea Salt and Fresh Ground Pepper 
and Serve with rice

(Martha Stewart Version 2 large Onion dice and Head of Garlic
Clove Smashed and Peeled and She use 2 Red bell pepper and Whole Tomatoes
 and 2 Zucchini 2 Sprigs oregano, 2-3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
Martha serve it in a bowl)

JACKIE'S LIST OF WHAT INGREDIENTS WERE CHANGE AND AMOUNT
1 28 0z of Dice Tomatoes instead of Whole Tomatoes
I Coated The Eggplant and Fried it  Instead of adding as is
I use 1 zucchini Slice instead of Two Dice
1 Onion instead of Two
2 Clove of Garlic Slice instead of a Head of Garlic
Dried Thyme instead of Sprigs of Oregano
Vegetable Broth Instead of Red Wine Vinegar
I serve it with White Rice Instead in a Bowl

It taste delicious and I as well as my guest enjoy it.
