Bountiful garden produce make a perfect vegetable stew! This recipe is versatile and can be served warm or cold. Serve with rice,polenta,pasta,puff pastry,baked potato,toasted bread or even stuff it in bread before baking. Makes a great topping for a fresh summer tart as well. Freezes well so make up a few batches to de-thaw in the long winter months for a taste of summer! This is my version of the French classic Ratatouille. Simply throw it in a pot and it is done!
Take advantage of the fresh summer vegetables while you can and be rewarded in months to come.
