Do you guys remember the 2007 movie Ratatouille? Well, I certainly do. And I remember the dish that Remy made for the food critic that was literally so good that it sent the food critic into a flashback about his mom making him that dish as a kid. Ever since I saw that movie, I have always wanted to make that dish. And finally I did just that! Although I didn’t have the help from a friendly and talented rat, I still think my Vegan Sweet Potato Ratatouille turned out pretty dang good!
For the tomato sauce, you can definitely go above and beyond and make it yourself, or you could be like me, and use a jar of store bought sauce, such as Classico Tomato Sauce. To be honest, it makes the recipe a lot easier and quicker, but I’m sure a homemade sauce would also be delicious.
I also decided to make this recipe using Sweet Potato instead of Eggplant which turned out to be a huge success. I don’t really like eggplant, so replacing it with sweet potatoes make the final product a little sweeter and creamier.
Eating this Vegan Sweet Potato Ratatouille made me feel like I was eating in a restaurant in Paris, with beautiful music playing in the background, and a talented rat-chef serving up his best dish. I really hope all of you guys have seen Ratatouille the movie because otherwise these jokes will clearly be going over your head.
