This Provençal Vegetable Stew is a delicious medley vegetables, tomatoes, and herbs. Served on a bed of rice, or with some fresh chewy bread for soaking up the yummy juices, you really can't go wrong with this stuff. Growing up, my mom made this often, calling it 'vegetable medley' (probably because the name ratatouille would scare us kids off). This recipe comes from the Moosewood Cookbook - the original one, written by Mollie Katzen, and probably my most favourite cookbook of all time. It's often considered Mediterranean, however it's roots are in France.
