Ratatouille with Feta, Green Olives, & Almonds

A delicious and hearty ratatouille dish topped with feta cheese, green olives, and toasted almonds.

  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 4-6 servings 1x


Units Scale

1/2 teaspoon red chili flakes
2 cloves garlic, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoons almonds, roughly crushed
4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup green olives, chopped
1/3 cup basil leaves, chopped
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 onions, chopped
1 eggplant, cubed
2 zucchini, cubed
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 teaspoon capers
1 14ounce can diced tomatoes
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar


Put the almonds into a large skillet over medium heat. Gently toast the nuts, being careful not to let them burn, for about 3 minutes. Add 3 tablespoons olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon red chili flakes, 1 chopped garlic clove, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook for another 3 minutes and transfer to a plate to cool. Crush the almonds roughly and put them into a bowl along with the feta cheese, olives, and 1/3 of the basil leaves. Mix well to combine all the ingredients.
Put 3 tablespoons olive oil and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon chili flakes into the skillet over medium heat. Add the onions, remaining garlic, and 1/3 of the basil leaves and cook until the onions start to soften, about 5 minutes. Put in the eggplant and cook until it is soft, about 10 minutes, adding more olive oil if necessary. Add the zucchini, fresh tomatoes, and capers; season with salt and pepper. Continue cooking until these vegetables are soft but still whole. Add the canned tomatoes, vinegar, and remaining basil leaves. Continue to cook for another 15 minutes; remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
To serve, put the ratatouille into a bowl or platter and top with the feta, olive, and almond mixture.


You can substitute feta cheese with any other type of cheese you like.
If you don’t have red chili flakes, you can use another type of chili powder such as cayenne pepper or smoked paprika.
