Ratatouille is the perfect dish for late summer evenings when you have so many vegetables you don’t know what to do with them all! While it is traditionally a French dish, by adding various vegetables and herbs you can change up its flair. Today we included the “heirloom okra” from this week’s box. You can literally add any and all vegetables. Here's our recipe. What You Need: 2 Tbsp. olive oil 1 eggplant, chopped into 1” cubes 1 onion, chopped 1 poblano pepper, chopped 1 bell pepper, chopped 1 cup okra, sliced 3 tomatoes, seeded and chopped 1/2 cup water 1/2 teaspoon thyme 1 tsp. salt fresh ground pepper 1 clove garlic, minced Chop all your vegetables. Add oil to a large skillet. Heat over

Roasted Romanesco Cauliflower

Romanesco, also known as Roman Cauliflower or Broccoflower, is similar to traditional cauliflower but its flavor is more delicate and nutty. Romanesco has been grown in Italy since the 16th century, but it is new to many Americans. Romanesco is rich in vitamins C and K and contains lots of fiber and carotenoids, which are thought to help reduce risk of disease including cancer. In short, it’s really good for you, so eat lots of it! You can prepare Romanesco the same way you like to cook broccoli or cauliflower. It would make for a colorful stir fry or pasta dish. Here’s a very simple way to cook it up on a busy evening to serve alongside fish or chicken. ROASTED ROMANESCO CAULIFLOWER 2 cups
