La Ratatouille

My Lebanese grandmother would often make something very similar to this ratatouille which we knew in Arabic as mtab'a. About ageĀ 15, I finally had a "French" ratatouille in Provence, made by my French step-mom's father. I always loved my grandmother's mtab'a and so embraced ratatouille immediately. It's very satisfying served as a main meal with someĀ rustic bread (Pain de Campagne), or goes well as an accompaniment to fish, meat or rice....
