Grilled Sausage and Toasted Fennel Seed Ratatouille

  • Author: Erik Stenberg


  • 1 pack grilled sausage
  • 1 eggplant, diced
  • 2 diced, 8-ball squash
  • 1/2 diced onions
  • 2 diced garlic cloves
  • Handful cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp fennel seed
  • 1 tsp chili flakes (opt)
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste (opt)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp parsley


  1. In a dry sauté pan with no oil, toast the fennel seeds.
  2. Once the seeds have browned, add some olive oil and sauté the onions and garlic and chili flakes together for 2 minutes with the fennel seeds.
  3. Add the eggplant and 8 ball squash and continue sautéing.
  4. After 3 minutes, add the cherry tomatoes and tomato paste, turn the heat down to a simmer and let it all cook together for about 20 minutes. The tomatoes will break down creating a sauce for the veggies to cook in.
  5. Grill the sausages on the BBQ. To make sure the sausages are cooked through, you can boil them for 10 minutes before grilling them.
