Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

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.

2

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.

3

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 baharat 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 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.

4

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; turn the dough out onto the work surface and divide into 2 [4] 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 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.

Serve

Transfer the ratatouille to individual plates, garnish with the mint, and serve with the flatbreads.
