  5. Chop the eggplant into small cubes. Add the chopped eggplant, bay leaf, thyme and oregano (optional). Reduce the heat if necessary and simmer for 20 minutes, partially covered, stirring frequently.
  6. At the last minute stir in some chopped basil and the ratatouille is ready to serve.
  7. Garnish each serving with some chopped basil.
Recipe Notes

This ratatouille is great served on a bed of brown rice, or accompanied by some green or root ( turnip, sweet potato, carrots...) vegetables.
Another serving option that works well is to accompany it with some freshly made whole grain bread.
