Ratatouille is a late-summer / early fall recipe with multiple charms. Air-frying makes the whole process a breeze and also cooks the dish perfectly without losing the essential texture and flavors of the individual vegetables. The dish is less stewy and more salad-like than a typical ratatouille, but with its concentrated flavor and fresh texture, along with a kick of garlic, it may soon become your favorite.
