Grilled Ratatouille Foil-Packets

Hey, guys! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! Mine was spent fixing up our backyard and doing some experimenting on the grill with these Grilled Ratatouille Foil-Packets.

Within the last week, we’ve officially uncovered the grill and fired it up. We didn’t get ours until it was towards the end of the season last year, so I’ve been so excited to get to use it more. I started off with a couple of marinated New York strip steaks and these flavorful veggie foil packets. I honestly couldn’t believe how well they turned out.

Fun fact: Matt and I LOVE the movie Ratatouille. Obviously, I’m partial because Remy is an adorable chef mouse. But, Matt loves it just as much as I do. I definitely feel like it’s one of the more grown-up Disney movies, and if you haven’t seen it, you’re severely missing out. Go watch it right now.

The dish ratatouille is a classic French Provençal dish consisting of stewed tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini, and bell peppers with various herbs and seasoning. Since so many of those vegetables are great in the spring/summer, I decided to put a grilled spin on it. Rest assured, I will be making this incredibly easy side dish all season long. I’m obsessed. P.S. I ate the leftovers this morning in a frittata with crumbled feta and it was amazing.

Ingredients & Subs

  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon fennel seeds
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 onion, sliced thin
  • 1 medium eggplant, cut into ½-inch slices
  • 1 small zucchini, sliced thin
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • ¾ pound small Roma tomatoes, sliced
  • ½ cup grated parmesan
  • ½ cup shredded fresh basil leaves

How to store

I find anything fried tends to have a 2-day life-max. To reheat, place on a baking sheet and cover with foil. Bake in a 325ºF oven until warmed through. You could try scooping the balls of batter onto parchment paper to freeze.

You’d then fry from frozen, but you’d need to account for the cold food bringing down the temp of the oil and they’ll take a bit longer to fry.
