Curried Vegetable Ragout

Ragout-720

It’s rainbow time! Filled with red pepper, tomatoes and red onion, orange juice, golden raisins, green beans, basil, parsley and cilantro, eggplant and balsamic vinegar, this easy to make curry ragout hits just about every color of the rainbow.

But have you ever asked yourself where the colors come from? These wonderfully rich colors are caused by phytochemicals, such as carotenoids and anthocyanins. Studies have shown that eating a diet high in phytochemical-containing foods can prevent many health conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure and even some cancers.

When choosing foods, remember: The darker the color, the more phytochemicals it contains. If you’re looking to bring color to your plate, and health to your body, look no further than this recipe!
