     This is very meaty tasting.


    Mushroom Ragu

    2 cups onion, diced
    2 cups bell pepper, diced
    2 T. olive oil
    2 T. garlic, minced
    1 - 10z. pkg. baby bella mushrooms, washed, cut in half, and sliced
    1 - 8 oz. pkg. shiitake or button mushrooms, washed, cut in half, and sliced
    1 - 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
    1 bay leaf
    1/2 t. salt
    1/4 t. freshly ground black pepper
    1/4 t. crushed red pepper flakes
    1/4 cup freshly chopped basil
    1/4 cup freshly chopped parsley

    In a large saucepan, saute the onion and bell pepper in olive oil for 3 minutes to soften. Add the garlic and saute an additional 2 minutes. Add both types of mushrooms and saute for 5 additional minutes. Add the crushed tomatoes, bay leaf, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes, and stir well to combine. Cover, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until the mushrooms are tender. Add the basil and parsley and simmer an additional 5 minutes. Taste and add additional salt and pepper, if needed. Serve as a sauce for pasta, polenta, grains, or main dishes.

    Gusteau’s Ratatouille


    1large eggplant, cubed

    1/4 to 1/3 cup olive oil

    1 onion, thinly sliced

    1 chopped pepper (red or green)

    2 to 4 crushed garlic cloves

    4 small zucchini, chopped

    4 tomatoes, chopped

    Salt and pepper to taste

    Salt the eggplant, drain in a colander for 1 hour, and pat dry. Heat half of the oil in a large saucepan and briefly saute the eggplant until brown, then add the onion and pepper. Next, add the garlic, zucchini, and tomatoes. Cook until a soft stew has formed, about 15 to 30 minutes.

    Serve over rice in a bowl or on a plate

    Add the salt, pepper, and basil and serve. You can freeze leftovers.
