This Favorite Provençal Ratatouille Recipe is seriously the lazy man’s French Vegetable medley. We could not be bothered roasting and stewing vegetables in a pot with the high heat index. We chose to grill the Provencal Ratatouille instead. Grilling is easy, deliciously simple, keeps the mess outside and is less work. Win-Win!

Summer Garden vegetables are going to be in full season soon and you will have one delicious recipe in your armory for a fabulous side dish. OurFavorite Provençal Ratatouille Recipe is made with just a handful of wholesome farm to table ingredients, just 8 ingredients and this includes staples such as olive oil and lemons.

Don’t wait until your summer zucchinis are the size of a floatation device to harvest (unless you need another floatation device for the kiddie pool) as this Provençal Ratatouille is best when the vegetables are at peak harvest and petite.

Provençal Ratatouille is happily gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, paleo-friendly, diabetic friendly, low-carb and can be on your table from chopping board to dining room table in less than 30 minutes. We served our Provençal Ratatouille with a simply grilled lemon cod with an olive tapenade for a delicious meal.

The secret to a quick and easy Favorite Provençal Ratatouille Recipe is cutting the vegetables all around the same size and using a vegetable grilling basket on the grill. This makes your life so much easier so you only have to cut things up once. You can also make this dish in a grill pan on your stove. We did not even bother grilling each vegetable separately but just put them all on at once, except for the cherry tomatoes. The reason being is two-fold. 1) we have an anti-tomato eater 2) tomatoes only take about 1 minute to grill before they pop.

Do you know why you know about Provençal Ratatouille? You may have been lived in Southern Provence of France or have eaten this at a restaurant. However, for many, the main reason you know about this dish is because of a Walt Disney Pixar film called, Ratatouille. Have you seen the movie? If you have children or grandkids, you probably know many of the famous lines.

You may have seen Provençal Ratatouille made very decoratively with perfect slices and rows of vegetables. How beautiful, right?!? Do you have an extra hour in your life to be making sure your veggies all line up and perfect rows? Leave that for Martha… This is real life we are talking about here with work, kids and deadlines. If it can’t be cooked in 30 minutes or less, it’s probably not going to happen. AMEN!

If you are looking for some other fun less than 30 minute side dish for this summer be sure to try our Grilled Chili Lime Okra, Super Easy Grilled Asian Eggplant  or Vegan Curried Rice.

  • This looks delicious and so healthy. What a simple yet tasty dish.

    • Thanks so much Gerlinde. Life has been so busy so if we can not whip it up in 30 minutes or less it is just not going to happen… 🙂 Hope you day is super!

  • Who doesn’t love ratatouille? So simple yet so exotic summer meal. Loving vibrant colors here. I will have to look for Herbs de Provence here.

    • Thank you Anu! Herbs De Provence is a mixture of thyme, savory, oregano, rosemary, marjoram and sometimes you might even see lavender in some but ours did not have lavender. It just makes it easy as everything is in one easy container but you could also make your own with fresh from the garden or dried. Take care

  • [email protected] is How I Cook

    Love this real life recipe! I hated tomatoes until about 5 years ago!

    • Thank you Abbe! Really, another tomato hater? You know it is so odd as they will eat tomatoes as part of a sauce but just not whole…

  • kitchenriffs

    Ratatouille is wonderful stuff! Full of flavor and it’ll fill you up. And so healthy! Exquisite — thanks.

    • Thanks John and super low carb. It really does feel like you are eating a whole meal even without the protein.

  • I make ratatouille at least once a summer. I love the idea of cooking the veggies in a grill basket—what great flavor they must have!!

    • Thank you Liz. The secret is to get those zucchini out of the garden and into dishes BEFORE they are the size of a flotation device. lol …Take care

  • Great spin on ratatouille, which I always think of as cooking with tons of olive oil and for ages. This looks fresh, vibrant, and I can still get a bit of that fresh crunch. Looks healthy and delicious.
