1 Carrot**, chopped

1 Onion, chopped

7 cloves of Garlic, peeled

2 Pimento Peppers, sliced

1 Large Red Bell Pepper, chopped

2 Medium sized Tomatoes, chopped (Optional – I just love tomatoes, I’ll add it to almost anything)

1 TBSP chopped local celery (Optional)

1 teaspoon dried Herbs De Provence

2 teaspoons Granulated Onion powder (looks like tiny salt granules)

2 TBSP Olive Oil

Sea Salt to taste

Your choice of Lettuce or Spinach or both (washed and drained)

 

METHOD:

1.  Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit

2.  In a large bowl, combine chopped broccoli, eggplant, carrot, onion, garlic, pimento peppers, red bell pepper, tomatoes and local celery.  Mix well.

3. Next, add dried Herbs De Provence, granulated onion powder and olive oil.  Mix well.
