Rosemary Ratatouille Frittata

Most ratatouille recipes call for seasoning the vegetable combination with a blend of herbs. Here, the mixture is flavored simply with fresh rosemary so that the vegetables take center stage.



Ingredient Line: 
2 Tbs. olive oil
Ingredient Line: 
3 cloves garlic, minced (1 Tbs.)
Ingredient Line: 
2 tsp. finely chopped fresh rosemary, plus 4 small sprigs for garnish
Ingredient Line: 
1 small Japanese eggplant (4 oz.), cubed
Ingredient Line: 
1 small zucchini (4 oz.), cubed
Ingredient Line: 
1 small onion, diced (1 cup)
Ingredient Line: 
½ large red bell pepper, cubed
Ingredient Line: 
½ cup canned crushed tomatoes
Ingredient Line: 
2 ½ tsp. red wine vinegar, divided
Ingredient Line: 
8 large eggs


1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat ovenproof nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Add oil; heat over medium-high heat. Add garlic and chopped rosemary. Cook 30 seconds. Add eggplant, zucchini, onion, and bell pepper. Sauté 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, 1 tsp. vinegar, and 1/2 cup water. Cover; cook 8 minutes.

2. Whisk together eggs and remaining 1 1/2 tsp. vinegar in bowl.

3. Scrape ratatouille into bowl. Recoat skillet with cooking spray, and return to medium-high heat. Pour in eggs, and cook 1 minute. Spoon 2 cups ratatouille over eggs. (Reserve any remaining ratatouille for another use.) Place skillet in oven, and bake 8 minutes, or until set.

4. Loosen frittata from skillet using heat-proof spatula. Slide out onto platter. Cut into 4 wedges, garnish each with rosemary sprig, and serve.

Comments on this Recipe

gluten free yummm

am wondering about cooking this slowly on top of the stove. Is this a possibility as my non stick frying pan is not meant to go into the oven......

Is the vinegar for something besides tasyte?

Can't believe this is a vegetarian dish. It has 8 eggs??

Can it be baked in a casserole dish???? And I am also questioning vinegar especially with eggs---wont they curdle??

Vegetarians eat eggs; vegans do not.

@ Maggie: Yes, you can cook a frittata on the stove - if it's thick, like this one, it helps to put a lid over the top for part of the cooking time; that will reflect heat back into the center so you don't have an over-cooked edge and runny center. @ Larry: Yes, eggs are considered a vegetarian food by most people - either you're thinking "vegan" (no animal products at all) or you're thinking "vegetarian = automatically low fat/cholesterol". Not necessarily . . . French fries can be vegetarian/vegan! @ the editors: That is an awful lot of garlic; it needs to be reduced by about 2/3 or cooked longer, if you want even the rosemary to show up, let alone something as mild as zucchini!
