Ratatouille with Crispy Rosemary Polenta Recipe
1. Mix rosemary, garlic powder, oregano, sea salt and pepper in small bowl. Set aside.

2. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Add eggplant; cook and stir 5 minutes or until softened. Add zucchini, bell pepper, tomatoes, 2 1/2 teaspoons of the spice mixture and sugar; cook and stir 8 to 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in vinegar.

3. Meanwhile, brush polenta slices with 2 teaspoons of the olive oil. Sprinkle with remaining spice mixture, pressing lightly to adhere to both sides. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Add polenta slices, several at a time; cook 2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Serve ratatouille over polenta slices.
