When your daughter recently became a vegan and actually researches and finds a recipe and sends it to you, you cook it. Or at least this mom does. 😉
Ratatouille is French. French is a section in ‘1000 Foods to Eat Before You Die’ and my husband and I are going to France this summer. So, really how could I not? Practically research, right?
It’s described as “a dish to engage the five senses.” I couldn’t agree more. What a visually appealing dish. I also adored the fact that I could bake it in my cast iron pan, which always elevates the flavor profiles!
This is the recipe my daughter sent me.
And now I’m laughing, as she is applying for colleges and starting to think about money, so I love that she found “plant based on a budget”
Pretty in the pan, fresh out of the oven.
And just as pretty on the plate.
Made this the same night I made Bangers and Mash; was a lot of work, but was able to please the carnivores, vegetarian and vegan!! And I always said I wouldn’t be a short order cook😂
