Ratatouille with Hawaiian Black Sea Salt
Ratatouille with Hawaiian Black Sea Salt is a tasty twist on a French Classic. Classic Ratatouille uses tomatoes as the base. This version also uses tomatoes and shares some of the same basic ingredients. Besides adding Hawaiian Black Sea Salt, you also use Oregano instead of Thyme. Small differences change the flavor just enough that you might have a hard time deciding which version you like better.
