Last year I spotted a chicken stew with roasted ratatouille recipe in USA Weekend that looked intriguing. Up to this point, I had never tasted ratatouille and had no particular desire to do so. But when I reviewed the nutritional information and saw that a serving of the stew yielded 33 grams of protein and only 11 grams of carbohydrates, I decided this recipe was definitely worth a try.
Man, is it good! I’ve shared this recipe with co-workers and friends, who rave about it as well. So now I’m sharing it with you. Check out the Summer Chicken Stew with Roasted Ratatouille recipe at http://threemanycooks.com/recipes/salads-and-sides/one-batch-of-ratatouille-yields-3-simple-summer-meals/. The online version of the recipe doesn’t contain nutritional information but you’ll probably surmise from the ingredients that this stuff is good for you.
As a result of this recipe, I grew zucchinis, eggplant, sweet onions and peppers for the first time this year.
Another recipe that I love for zucchinis and such is the South Beach Diet Cheesy Frittata recipe at http://www.food.com/recipe/south-beach-diet-cheesy-frittata-296997. It’s a great breakfast dish with 21 grams of protein and only 16 grams of carbohydrates per serving.
