      Slow Cooker Vegetable Ragout

      Vegetable Ragout from Everyday Good Thinking | @HamiltonBeach

      This time of year, farmers markets are overflowing with eggplants, bell peppers, basil and other summer offerings. Make this Vegetable Ragout in your slow cooker to keep the kitchen cool and use up all those veggies so they don’t go to waste in the back of a refrigerator drawer. Serve it alone or over pasta or rice for a complete meal that is healthy, beautiful, easy and delicious.
