  • If using dried herbs instead of fresh, decrease to 1 teaspoon each instead of 1 tablespoon.
  • Substitute an Italian herb blend for separate herbs, if desired.
  • If you are on a low potassium diet count as 1-1/2 vegetable servings.
  • Prepare Ratatouille as a side dish or add pasta (small shells, bow ties or elbows) or make it a complete meal by adding cooked ground turkey, chicken or beef.

I received from our dietician a grocery list on what were suppose to eat! How come y'all don't use vegis like tomatillos, some other stuff. Haven't y'all receive one? I made every thg & here y'all do different? I'm really confused!

I have not actually made this yet. But growing up my mom loved ratatouille and we ate it often. The list of ingredients looks great so I'm giving it 5 stars now. I plan to make it for my mother to keep in her freezer for individual meals. But I saw it has tomatoes and she's been told to avoid them by a Urologist. She's got stage 3 kidney failure plus kidney & bladder stones. Will this small amount of tomatoes matter? And could I sub in something else or just leave it out and still have a nice side dish? Dietitian comment: This is one of my favorite DaVita recipes. You can leave out the tomatoes and it will still taste great!

Are the nutrients per serving listed for 1/2 C. serving or is this for 1C. serving? Dietitian Comment: The serving size is 1/2 cup (approximately 1 cup uncooked vegetables).

This is one of my 5 star recipes. Makes a lot so I can freeze portions. A great and easy dish! (Takes time to prepare the vegetables however.)

The recipe says is makes 8 half-cup portions, or a total of 4 cups, of ratatouille, but I ended up with almost 10 cups. Is the serving size (and therefore, corresponding nutrition information) correct? Moderator comment: The serving size is 1 cup instead of 1/2 cup, which has been corrected on the recipe. I measured slightly over 8 cups but the amount may vary depending on the size of the vegetables and the cooking time. This was so good I'll definitely try it again!

This was a very good tasting recipe, although it was light. I was still a little hungry afterward
