1 Roast vegetables

Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan. Chop the bell pepper and zucchini roughly. Peel the eggplants in a stripey pattern, then cut them into cubes. Add the vegetables to a lined baking tray. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Roast in the oven for 25 min.

2 Make tomato sauce

Meanwhile, peel and chop the onion and garlic. Heat a large pan over a medium heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the onion and garlic, and fry with a pinch of salt for 5 min. Add the oregano, chopped tomatoes and sugar. Simmer for 10-15 min. Keep warm.

3 Make meatball mix

Place the lamb mince, half of the chopped mint, the eggs, half of the feta cheese and the salt and pepper in a large bowl. With clean hands, knead for at least 3-4 min - this will tenderize the meat. Shape into meatballs.

4 Toast pine nuts

Heat a pan over a medium heat. Toast the pine nuts for 2 min until lightly browned. Remove the pine nuts from the pan and set aside.

5 Fry meatballs

Return the pan to a medium heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Fry the meatballs for 5-6 min until browned all over.

6 Finish ratatouille

Once the vegetables are roasted, pour them into the tomato sauce. Check the seasoning. Serve the ratatouille with the lamb meatballs. Crumble the remaining feta cheese over the top. Garnish with the remaining chopped mint, and the toasted pine nuts.

Tips for fussy eaters

Add regular cheese to their meatballs and leave out the mint. Serve with pasta.

Pro tip

The longer you knead the mince meat mixture for, the more tender your meatballs will become.

Ratatouille is a classic French Provençal stew packed with late summer vegetables.
