Ratatouille has been always a favorite dish of mine. Not only can be served with pasta, French fries or rice but serve over toasted flat bread and now you have a healthy Pizza.
The french dish Ratatouille is a variation of similar dishes from the mediterranean, you can have it as a main or side dish, for breakfast, lunch or dinner. At The Real Food Academy, we like this dish not only for its rich taste but also because is nutritous and fun to make! Kids and adults like building this casserole style dish either family style or in ramekins. In the instructions, you will find terms such as concasse
, these are technical terms for peeled and seeded tomatoes and thinlly sliced herbs. Follow the notes in the recipe so you can concasse your fresh tomatoes to perfection and chiffonade your basil like a pro! Bon appetite!
The dynamic duo! Cauliflower and Artichokes are known for their health benefits. They contain minerals, vitamins, fiber and antioxidants that aid the cardiovascular system, immune system, detoxify the body and prevent early oxidation in cells that can speed up cancer. Skip the Parmesan and Goat Cheese to keep it on the vegan side and add some Turmeric and Nutritional Cheese for added flavor!
