Zucchini Ratatouille
Serves 2

This comes from gone raw: http://goneraw.com/recipes/8-Zucchini-Ratatouille – it’s a very good and very simple recipe although it does require using a dehydrator. I always modify recipes and so expect this to be slightly different from the link above. Here’s what they have to say. I’m eating this tonight. YUM!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++

This is an easy recipe that goes great with a simple, tossed salad. The zucchini comes out of the dehydrator warm and there is something about the sauce that makes me swear that it has cheese in it. Great for when I’m craving a heartier dish.

Ingredients
* 2 large zuchini, cut into rounds
* 1/4 – 1/2 cup olive oil
* 2 tablespoons raw apple cider vinegar
* 1 1/2 cups sundried tomatoes, soaked
* 1 tablespoon italian seasoning
* Celtic sea salt and pepper to taste

Preparation

Cut zucchini into rounds using a knife or manoline. Toss zucchini in a mixing bowl with olive oil, salt and dash of pepper and let it sit for 1/2 hour to an hour. This actually softens the zucchini – sort of precooks it. Place zucchini on Teflex dehydrator sheets and dehydrate for 1 hour at 145 degrees F. At the end of an hour, blend the remaining ingredients in blender until smooth. Toss zucchini with sauce before serving.

If you’d like, you can blend the ingredients and put in a bowl in the dehydrator to warm that up as well. And here’s a hint, to soften the sundried tomatoes a little faster, soak in warm water.

It really does taste like a cheesy dish. Very delicious. OK, I’m off to make it!
