    Ratatouille in the microwave

    A great way to get veg into kids - and big kids will love it too. Very simple to make - though you need to keep popping back and forth to stir it every five minutes for half an hour or so.

    • Total time: 40mins

    Serves: 4


    • 2 tbsp olive oil
      1 onion
      1 clove garlic
      2 courgettes
      1 aubergine
      1 red pepper
      1 tin tomatoes
      salt and pepper
      cheat's chilli
      maybe sugar


    1. • Put 2 tbsp olive oil in a large microwaveable bowl. Zap in microwave for 1 minute. Peel and chop a garlic clove and an onion. Add the garlic and onion to the bowl and zap for 4 mins.
    2. • Slice an aubergine, two courgettes, and a red pepper into bite-sized pieces. Open a tin of tomatoes.
    3. • Bung all the above into the bowl, cover with a plate and zap for 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes (ie zap for 5 mins, stir, zap another 5 mins, stir, etc). NB: I like to add half a teaspoon of cheat's chilli (the one that comes in a glass jar)
    4. • Take the plate off, and zap again for three lots of 3 minutes, stirring in between as before.
    5. • Taste. If not cooked to your liking zap it some more. You can add a dessertspoon or two of sugar if your tomatoes weren't very ripe.
    6. • Season with salt and pepper. Eat hot or cold. Fab!
