Crockpot Ratatouille (Great Daniel Fast Recipe)

New Years is a great time for new beginnings.  I have noticed alot of churches participating in a Daniel Fast. Its a fast that concentrates on eating foods from the earth. (Semi-Paleo) Here is a Crockpot Ratatouille recipe to try.  If you want to add nitrate free Chicken Sausage or Turkey Sausage- its not Daniel Fast or Paleo but is just as yummy.  We spoon it over Basmati rice or Jasmine rice. The flavors are so fresh. There’s something specific about the layering of the veggies and the order in which you layer them that makes the dish so good.  Let me know what you think!   Stay Warm,  Janice
