Louisiana Healthcare Connections and the LSU AgCenter have teamed up to produce the video series ‘Build a Healthy Meal.’ We’ll show you how to make easy, tasty and healthy recipes for the whole family using low-cost ingredients that can be found in your local dollar store or grocery store.
In this segment, LSU AgCenter Area Nutrition Agent and registered dietitian Bertina Mcghee demonstrates how to make easy ratatouille. Ratatouille is stewed vegetables that is a nutritious side dish. It can be served with any meal to add a variety of colors and flavors! The best part of this dish is that many of the ingredients can be purchased at your local farmers’ market. Buying fresh fruits and vegetables when they are in season means they will be at the best price and will have the best taste!
