Finished baking

This dish has many of my favorite things – the tomato sauce and noodles of a traditional lasagna, spinach found in many vegetarian lasagnas, and eggplant found in Greek dishes like moussaka.

Ratatouille

Ratatouille is a traditional French dish, and comes in many different variations. From my perspective, two ingredients are absolutely critical — eggplant and tomatoes. The dish pictured here is fairly traditional.

Worldly rice and beans

Rice & Beans is a staple dish for many countries around the world, especially poorer countries. Apparently they figured out long before recent scientific affirmation that the combination of grains and legumes makes for a very healthy and tasty meal.

This is my version of a very classic soup. It is very hearty, and contains just the right balance of vegetables, grains, and legumes. This is one of my favorite winter dishes.
