Make the flatbread dough
In a medium bowl, combine the flatbread mix, 3 tablespoons [6 TBL] water, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil, and ½ teaspoon [1 tsp] salt. Using a fork, stir until a dough forms. Let stand while you start the ratatouille.
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 into ½-inch cubes.
- Cut the zucchini into ½-inch pieces.
- Rinse the chickpeas.
Cook the ratatouille
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the garlic, tomato paste, and 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] baharat, plus more if desired, and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the eggplant and ¼ cup [½ cup] water, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the eggplant starts 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 vegetables are tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in the chickpeas and cook until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. While the ratatouille is cooking, 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.
Lightly dust a work surface with flour (from your pantry); turn the dough out onto the work surface and divide into 2  equal pieces. Working with one piece of dough at a time, shape it into a ball. Using a rolling pin or large bottle, roll out the dough into a ⅛-inch-thick circle.
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 the flatbread 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.
Transfer the ratatouille to individual plates, garnish with the mint, and serve with the flatbreads.
