Wood-Fired Ratatouille

Wood-Fired Ratatouille

The dog days have arrived and the heat has really set in. Fortunately, gardens are bursting with squash, tomatoes, and fresh herbs, which means it’s the perfect time for ratatouille. This French classic takes on a beautiful char in the wood-fired oven and makes a refreshing, savory entree or side dish. It’s a great way to use your summer veggie bounty.

wood fired ratatouille recipe


  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil (plus a little more)
  • 1 bunch fresh thyme
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 3 sweet onions
  • 4 zucchini
  • 2 eggplant
  • 5 ripe tomatoes
  • Red pepper flakes to taste
  • Salt to taste
  • Any color bell pepper (optional)

Fire oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

If you want to garnish your dish with bell pepper and add a more roasted flavor, you can drizzle your peppers with oil and char them while your fire is live. Use the the charred pepper as a centerpiece in your dish.
