Ratatouille

With the release of the new movie by the same name I expect ratatouille to become quite popular in the coming weeks.
How do you make yours?

You can find my recipe for ratatouille here:

ratatouille is a natural for us kitchen gardeners here in the New Jersey / Pennsylvania area...eggplant squash & tomato, maybe even mushrooms, all grown here beautifully often by the home chef in the back yard. I make it in batches to freeze at summer's end into the fall. I keeps for about 6 weeks without getting sloppy, and is great as a main over pastas or various rices.

Over the years, I've made/eaten many recipes for Ratatouille, but still can't warm up to it, which is strange, since I love squash, eggplant, tomatoes, & make many other dishes where they're all incorporated.

The only variations of Ratatouille I've really enjoyed have been those where the dish is pretty much turned into a warm Caponata - lots of vinegar, capers, etc., etc.

An option my mom asks for anytime I'm in her town is what she calls "Claire's ratatouille". I halve or slice (depending on size) eggplant, onions, squash, tomatoes, etc. Then toss with olilve oil and Cavendar's Greek seasoning (any garlic seasoning you like would be fine). Then I toss them on the charcoal, take off when they just barely get soft and a little brown. Chop and toss. Good by itself, on pasta or rice, hot or cold.
