This is a simplified, rustic take on ratatouille! The vegetables are tender and literally melt into the tomato sauce and mix with the creamy white bean puree - it’s pure heaven! This is definitely a lighter dinner, since it’s mostly just vegetables, so you could easy bulk it up with a grain like couscous or quinoa on the side. Or also a huge baguette of french bread— because you KNOW there’s going to be some leftover tomato juices that need some mopping up.

Ratatouille White Bean Casserole [Vegan, Gluten-Free]



Cook Time



For the Ratatouille:

  • 1 large eggplant, thinly sliced
  • 2 large zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups tomato sauce
  • 6 Roma or campari tomatoes, sliced
  • Fresh basil, for garnish
  • Vegan parmesan cheese, for garnish

For the White Bean Purée:

  • 1 15-ounce can white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2-3 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place thinly sliced eggplant on a large baking sheet, and bake for 10 minutes. Eggplant will be shriveled and tender.
  2. While the eggplant is baking, make your white bean puree by placing all the puree ingredients into a food processor and blending until fairly smooth.
  3. Once the eggplant is done, it’s time to start layering your casserole! Begin by pouring a 1/2 cup of tomato sauce in your casserole dish (I used 9×13-inch) and using a spatula to spread it to coat the bottom of the dish. Add in a layer of eggplant, followed by a layer of sliced zucchini. Top with the white bean puree, and spread it evenly across the zucchini with a spatula.
  4. Time for the last of the layering! Add another layer of eggplant, followed by another layer of zucchini. Top with 1 cup of tomato sauce and a layer of sliced tomatoes. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until zucchini is tender. Feel free to garnish with fresh basil, nutritional yeast, or vegan parmesan cheese. Let it cool for 10 minutes before slicing and serving!

Meyer Lemon Coconut Cream Tarts With Mint and Lavender [Vegan, Raw, Gluten-Free]

To make the crust: put the oats and almonds into a high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick, slightly crumbly paste. If needed or desired, add a little maple syrup, then press into two tartlet molds or whatever shapes/molds you like. Put in the fridge. To make the lemon coconut cream: put the coconut and cashews into your high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick paste/butter. Stir in a 1/4 cup lemon juice and the maple syrup until evenly combined (or blend it in). If you'd like more lemon flavour, add more lemon juice! I like mine quite tart - no pun intended, seriously - so I used a full 1/2 cup. Spread this mixture evenly into your crusts, then let them sit in the fridge overnight or for at least a couple hours so the flavours can get to know each other. Garnish with mint, basil, lemon zest, maple syrup or whatever else you like! Life is good!

By tomato sauce, do you mean tomato paste or passata? Or actual tomato ketchup?
