Slow Cooker Ratatouille Recipe

slow cooker ratatouille recipe

We’ve been growing eggplant in our garden this year for the first time and I cannot believe how well it’s doing! So much so that I’m starting to exhaust my resources with what to do with eggplant. I mean you can only make so much eggplant parm. So this week I went to my favorite slow cooker ratatouille recipe. Easy, simple, and tastes amazing!

I gotta say though, the one reason why I hadn’t shared this recipe on the blog yet was because I can never get a good photo of this ratatouille. Seriously. I can’t. So if the photos don’t look as appetizing as some of my other dishes, don’t be scared away! This truly is a delicious vegetarian dish that I love.

And if you have any other eggplant recipes to suggest please send them my way! I’ll be needing them.

Slow Cooker Ratatouille Recipe

  • 1 medium eggplant
  • 2 zucchini
  • 1 onion
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup pesto
  • salt and pepper to taste

Dice up the eggplant, zucchini, onion and tomatoes. Add onion and garlic to a pan and saute for 1-2 minutes. When garlic gets fragrant add eggplant and zucchini. Sautee until onions are translucent.

Dump all of the veggies into your slow cooker and top with tomatoes. Cook on low for 4 hours. About 30 minutes before serving stir in pesto and add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with some delicious corn cakes or corn bread and enjoy!

  1. Love eggplant, and I love ratatouille, but it normally needs such a lot of stirring. This is a great solution – thank you!

    If you have too much eggplant, you can always cut it up in roughly one inch cubes, toss in lots of olive oil and salt and roast in a single layer on baking sheets in a hot oven for about 25 – 30 minutes. Turn halfway through. Once it is cooked I let it cool and pop it in freezer bags. It cooks into sauces and stews straight from frozen and is so handy to have on hand.
