One Pan Ratatouille Recipe

This one pan Ratatouille recipe can be made with a variety of vegetables depending on what you have in your fridge. It’s vegan, gluten free, and easy to make!

I’m literally sitting here wondering why it took me so long to make ratatouille. It’s basically a bunch of my favorite flavors and it’s full of vegetables. Plus, this recipe is not an exact science and you can swap in whatever you have. A pinch of this… a little bit of that… this is my kind of recipe.

Literally right after I made this ratatouille, I was watching Gilmore Girls and Suki was also making ratatouille. That’s when I knew this was meant to be. But seriously, I loved how easy this ratatouille was and it turned out quite delicious.

Hello there, veggies. You’re welcome to come over anytime.

We added a dollop of burrata cheese on top and ate it with some toasted Focaccia bread.

Side note: Have we talked about how Burrata is amazing? If you’ve never tried it, it’s made from Mozzarella and cream so it’s basically the softest most delicious cheese ever. I’m not usually a soft cheese person… except for mozzarella. So this is my kind of cheese. Plus it just melts so perfectly on top of this warm ratatouille.

And the best part of this ratatouille recipe? You can make it all in ONE PAN. That means more time eating and less time scrubbing pots and pans. That’s a win in my book!

This one pan ratatouille is the perfect meatless recipe! You can use whatever vegetables you have on hand to create an easy healthy dinner!

  15. I LOVE ratatouille. Yours looks amazing! Thanks for sharing your recipe…

  16. Wow, this sounds amazing! I love veggie based dishes like this since you can eat a big ol’ filling portion of it. Question – is burrata cheese readily available at most supermarkets?

  17. I can’t help but think of the movie whenever I hear ratatouille! And crusty bread is such a must for me! Looks delish Liz!

  18. I’ve never actually had Ratatouille before but it looks amazing and I love that it’s vegan!

  19. Omg this looks sooo heavenly! I’m a big fan of both burrata and ratatouille! So flavourful wow

  20. Ratatoullie is definitely up there in my FAVORITES list – but one of my favorite ONE PAN MEALS = using an extra large pan to roast salmon and sweet potatoes at the same time! 😉

  21. Well now I know what to eat while I watch the Winter episode of Gilmore Girls again! Love the one pot concept too! Yum…Pinned!

  22. Yum! I have no idea why I’ve never made ratatouille–its literally everything I love in a pan! I want to eat it while watching Ratatouille (I love that movie!) haha!

  23. This looks delicious and I love a one dish recipe. So good mid week when you don’t want to spend too much time cleaning up. All those vegetables look magnificent. I’m glad you reminded me about ratatouille! I’ll try your recipe.

  24. I’ve never made a ratatouille before but DANG this looks and sounds amazing!! And what’s better than a one dish recipe? 😉

  25. Mmmh, this looks amazing. The more vegetables the better. It’s a pity all ratatouille vegetables – eggplant, zucchini – are insanely expensive right now or I’d add this to my meal plan immediately.
    Curry and vegan chili are two of my favourite one pot/pan meals.

  26. I’ve actually never made a ratatouille before either. This looks and sounds wonderful. What a great use for eggplant!

  27. This looks fabulous! Thanks for sharing.

  32. Yes, this looks fabulous Liz, and gotta try that Burrata!! Yum yum yum.

  33. This looks amazing! I’m all for one-pan meals. I usually do ratatouille in the summer when my coworkers start bringing in their homegrown squash and tomatoes.
