Print Friendly 

Description:
Herbes de Provence (Provençal herbs) is a mixture of dried herbs from Provence invented in the 1970s.The standard mixture typically contains savory, fennel, basil, and thyme flowers and other herbs. The proportions vary by manufacturer. Thyme usually dominates the taste produced by the herb mixture. Lavender is only added in American mixes but is not used in French traditional mixes. Herbes de Provence are used to flavour grilled foods such as fish and meat, as well as vegetable stews. The mixture can be added to foods before or during cooking or mixed with cooking oil prior to cooking so as to infuse the flavour into the cooked food. They are rarely added after cooking is complete.



Ingredients:
5 tomatoes
1 large zucchini
1 large eggplant
1 green bell pepper
1 big onion
2 cloves of garlic
2 tsp. herbs de Provence (or thyme, basil, oregano, marjoram, etc.)
3 tbsp. cold pressed extra virgin olive oil
Pinch of sea salt or organic salt
Pinch of pepper
1 cup of water (best: alkaline water)


Directions:
Wash and scrub all the vegetables. Dice the tomatoes and pepper bell and slice the zucchinis, the eggplant as well as the onion and the garlic in thin slices.

Heat some olive oil in a pot (or wok) and sauté the onions and the garlic for a couple of minutes.

Then add the eggplant and zucchini slices as well as the pepper bell and stir-fry for around 8 minutes. Then add the cup of water, the tomatoes and the herbs, stir well and let cook for a few more minutes until the vegetables are tender but not too soft.

Taste with salt and pepper and serve immediately. Enjoy this delicious Ratatouille!

Wellness Tip
Fads Don't Fight Fat
Most health experts agree that people who lose weight with fad diets are rarely able to keep it off. You may also put yourself at risk for not getting enough nutrients. To help achieve a healthy weight loss, eat a well-balanced diet and participate in regular exercise. Limit your loss to between 1/2 and 2 pounds per week.

Recipe
Coconut Cauliflower Turmeric Rice
Category: Side Dishes
Description: One of the best things about Winter is the food, hands down. After a summer of grillin' and chillin', I am feeling a strong call from my stove - it's lonely, it needs some loving. Cauliflower rice totally rocks as an alternative to grains, but what if we could kick it up a notch, maybe give it a little Indian/Thai flavor so that is pairs perfectly with curried chicken and veggies? The answer lies below (and it's delicious).

In addition to being a super low-carb version of a pantry staple, cauliflower is packed with Fiber, Vitamin C, Magnesium, and Vitamin B-6. Even though coconut milk and coconut oil are high in fat, it's the best kind of fat out there. Also, coconut has a plethora of health and beauty benefits including a slimmer waistline, shinier hair, and clear, luminous skin. As a bonus, the cardamom in this dish has detoxifying and anti-inflammatory properties.
