My kids had been hassling me to make ratatouille since they'd watched the animation movie of the same name. Hubby doesn't like eggplant or zucchini so he had to bite his tongue...lol. I added prawns just for a difference, nicking a Jamie Oliver flavour.
Place eggplant on a tray and lightly sprinkle with salt.
Cover with a sheet of foil , press lightly with a few tins and leave for an hour.
Wipe off moisture with kitchen towel and discard juices.
Heat oil in casserole dish and saute onion until limp and golden.
Add garlic, capsicum and eggplant, then cover in casserole and cook gently for 40mins.
Add zucchini, tomato and pepper and cook for a further 20 mins.
Heat a wok or frypan and add oil, prawns, lime zest and ginger.
Stirfry for 2 mins, until prawns are lightly golden
Remove from heat and add chilli
Season with soy sauce and toss well
