Tempeh Ratatouille on Wheat Berries

Tempeh Ratatouille on Wheat Berries

The French word “touiller” in ratatouille means to toss food. Chefs Julia Child and Joël Robuchon popularized the method of preparing this classic Provençal dish of saucy mixed vegetables by cooking the vegetables separately in stages and tossing them, like in this recipe. Fresh parsley and lemon balm, a member of the mint family, stand in to represent the traditional herbes de Provence.
