Cover and leave to cook until whites of eggs are firm, but yolks still runny.

Serve as soon as possible.

Remarks

This choice of vegetables can be varied to taste, and for a "true" ratatouille you should add other Mediterranean ones (garlic, aubergines, etc.), but it's already pretty good like this.
