Summer calls for healthy indulgences, and the classic French ratatouille is a perfect example of it. Prepared using eggplant, this classic stew also boasts of other fresh summer yields like zucchini, red peppers, tomatoes, squash, and loads more. Chef Merlin prepares a lip-smacking, flavorful stew that not only melds strong, savoury flavors together, but also makes for a yummy treat.
