(For Friday Favorites we feature past recipes you may have missed, and this Slow Cooker Ratatouille from The Perfect Pantry is a great recipe to use up garden vegetables, perfect for everyone who happens to have a surplus right now!)
I think we’ve offically entered the time of year where using up garden vegetables becomes a major challenge for many people who have gardens. That blessed dilemma may have been what inspired the French vegetable stew called Ratatouille, which uses generous amounts of tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant, and peppers. A few years ago there was even a charming kids movie about this famous french dish!
This delightful version of Slow Cooker Ratatouille from The Perfect Pantry also adds optional ingredients like potatoes and mushrooms, and Lydia says you can use nearly anything you find in the garden or pantry in this classic dish. I think Slow Cooker Ratatouille is a perfect meatless dinner option, and using the slow cooker will help keep the house cool!
