This Paleo-friendly favorite works well as a main dish, side dish, or even a filling for an omega 3-omelet. Ratatouille is a traditional french dish that has many different ways of preparation. It can be left essentially as a soup style dish, with the juices from the vegetables making up a delicious savory broth; some chefs prefer to drain the broth out and then bake in a covered pan until it thickens, and some do a in-between variation that turns out much like the consistency of stew.
