Did you know eggplant is a fruit, not a vegetable? You berry believe it! Botanically speaking, eggplant is considered a berry because, like blueberries or grapes, it meets all the anatomical berry requirements, such as multiple seeds surrounded by delicious tender flesh.

Wash produce before use
Make the flatbread dough
Prep the ratatouille ingredients
- Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
- Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
- Remove the stem from the eggplant; cut the eggplant in half lengthwise. Cut each half lengthwise into ½-inch-thick strips, the strips lengthwise into ½-inch-wide sticks, and the sticks crosswise into ½-inch cubes.
- Trim the ends from the zucchini; cut the zucchini in half lengthwise. Cut each half lengthwise into ½-inch-thick strips, then crosswise into ½-inch pieces.
- Rinse the chickpeas.
Cook the ratatouille
Add the eggplant and ¼ cup [½ cup] water, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 4 to 6 minutes. Add the zucchini and ¼ cup [½ cup] water if the pan is dry and cook, stirring occasionally, until the eggplant and zucchini are tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in the chickpeas and cook until warmed through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the ratatouille cooks, prepare the mint and flatbreads.
Prep the mint; shape and cook the flatbreads
- Strip the mint leaves from the stems; tear or coarsely chop the leaves for garnish.
In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working with one at a time, add a flatbread and cook until lightly browned on one side, 1 to 2 minutes. Turn and carefully add 1 tablespoon water to the pan, cover, and cook until the flatbread is cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between flatbreads if needed.
