Ratatouille with rye bread toast

Calorie count: 118 or 173 with rye toast

Most of us know how to make ratatouille, chiefly because it’s one of those cheerful dishes that can cope with anything you sling at it. I’ve slung plenty at this version in order to max out the veg content. Don’t dismiss the tiny amount of sugar here – it helps to bring out the flavour in any cooked tomato dish. Make this in double quantity and have it handy in the freezer for a Fast Day fix.

 crushed
 1 celery stalk, finely chopped
