Sweet Potato Ratatouille

Ratatouille is a popular Mediterranean dish, which is so easy to prepare. I decided I would add some sweet potato to the mix just to see how it would taste and I'm so glad I did.

  1. Heat pan and add 2 tbsp olive oil.
  2. Brown aubergines on both sides until soft, set them aside.
  3. Add the rest of the oil and saute onions until soft, add garlic, red chillies and spices (not black pepper) on a medium heat.
  4. Stir in sweet potato and 1/4 cup of water, cover and simmer for about 10 minutes until sweet potato becomes tender. 
  5. Add courgettes, red pepper, tin tomato & vegetable stock cube, cook for 4 minutes then stir in aubergines add black pepper, cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Add water if needed.
