A batch of this made on your prep day makes for tasty, easy lunches during the week. I used to buy a vegan version of this at the market until I realized I could make it way tastier and way less expensive!

Raw Ratatouille with yellow tomato puree

I was so pleasantly surprised on how fresh and flavourful this Raw Ratatouille turned out! Between my Sole Food Farm share and the community garden plot, and with Jay out of town, I had more tomatoes than I knew what to do with. I froze a bunch to make sauce later this year, and still had Continue Reading …
