Ratatouille Soup

Rtatouille is traditionally a French stew and you can find my recipe for the stew here. I have posted my soup version of ratatouille below. It is great for a rainy, cold day, and I think you will find it easy and very enjoyable.

Serves 4.

Ingredients:

  • 1 c zucchini, finely diced
  • 1 c eggplant, peeled and finely diced
  • 1 c red sweet pepper, chopped
  • 1 c seitan, finely diced
  • 1 c cooked garbanzo beans, drained
  • 1/2 c red onion, chopped
  • 1/3 c parsley, minced
  • 1 hot chili pepper, minced (optional)
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 c vegetarian chicken-style broth
  • 1 c tomato juice
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp each: ground coriander, ground fennel seed, basil, oregano, thyme

Directions:

  1. Place all the ingredients in a 2-quart or larger heavy pot over medium heat.
  2. Bring to simmer. Reduce heat and cover. Simmer 30 minutes, stirring once or twice.
  3. Serve hot with bread or crackers.
