Ratatouille is a versatile dish that can either be a meal in itself or a side with pasta or rice. Omitting the cheese makes this recipe vegan.
Because of the richness of this dish I added a little Garam Masal and Cumin for the smokiness without wanting it to taste too "Chili" like, and it worked! Everyone loved this i will make this again! I also added frsh diced tomatos which gave it a fantastic taste. - 12 May 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

I worked with what I had on hand (eggpl, red onion, lots of garlic, red/green pepp, frozen brocc, can of stewed tom., garb. beans,& tempeh). It was really good. I did the little bit of cumin and I overdid it a bit w/ the rosemary/thyme. I think the natural flavor of the veggies and s/p would have been fine. No matter what you have on hand the chick peas and tempeh were a great idea and create a good stew texture. Nice way to use tempeh. - 20 Jan 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
