This easy and healthy dish screams “summer!” with its melange of tender okra, ripe cherry tomatoes, and fresh garden herbs. The water-saute method of cooking the veggies keeps it on the lighter side of things, making it a perfect dish to bring along to warm-weather potlucks.
Ratatatouille has always been a favorite dish of mine (and I enjoy pronouncing it with my best French accent)–but honestly, I consider it a bit of a pain in the you know where to prepare. I have terrible luck with mandolines, and usually not nearly enough patience to use my chef’s knife to thinly cut a ton of veggies for dinnertime, I usually just find myself opting for another meal instead. And this is unfortunate, because to my tastebuds, ratatouille is really, really good. The way the eggplant, peppers, and zucchini merge into one deliciously fragrant explosion of flavor is quite crave-worthy.
Hey everyone! This is my first post of an ongoing DIY series I’m doing. I’m kickin’ it off with an easy DIY on home brewing kombucha since it is one of my favorite hobbies as of late.
If you follow me on twitter, you may know that I’m a giant kombucha fanatic. I always seem to have a bottle nearby, and oftentimes, I tweet about it.
But, if you’ve ever purchased the stuff pre-bottled at your favorite health food/convenience store, then you’ll also know that drinking a daily 1 or 2 kombuchas can quickly become an expensive habit. My dear husband used to gripe about how my brew of choice, at around $5.00 per bottle, cost significantly more than his. He was right; it was getting rather rediculous.
