Ratatouille with Polenta



I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  We had such a great time with our family and ate way to much of course.  This ratatouille recipe is great way to get in a bunch a veggies after all the not so good for you holiday food.  It is very filling and warm, so perfect for the fall weather.  I baked mine in individual portions, but it would be just as great in a larger casserole dish.  The ratatouille could also be served on its own or with the polenta as a side dish.


Spicy Eggplant



This recipe is for my cousin Larkin.  We went to a Chinese restaurant a few weeks ago and ordered spicy eggplant.  It was so good, but I felt terrible after eating it because of all the salt and oil.  I felt even worse when I looked up the nutritional info and found out it had over 40 grams of fat and 3 days worth of sodium.  Larkin wanted to me to come up with my own version, so here it is.
