Chef’s Note: This dish is a perfect demonstration of what Harvest Eating is. Using abundant seasonal vegetables to create delicious meals out of necessity. This dish was surely created as a way to use the abundance of vegetables that grow in the south of France during warmer months. Play around with the recipe, make it work for you and make it with fresh ingredients.
