From your Favorite Pixar Film: Ratatouille made in a Mini Cast Iron Pot

Posted by Daisy Sun on

Are you a Disney Pixar fan? From one of their most popular films, the infamous Ratatouille dish is right at your fingertips! Not only is this dish low in carbs, but it is also low in calories, helping you to stay in a calorie deficit. Plus, get the bonus of getting a 2 in 1 using a mini cast iron pot as a cooking and serving dish.

Au Natural 

As we all know, many pots and pans nowadays are made with a Teflon non-stick coating to make washing easier and to prevent our foods from sticking to the surface. However, when scratched, the Teflon coating releases carcinogenic chemicals into your food. A healthier alternative is to use a cast iron pot. In this case, the perfect cast iron pot would be the Mini Cast Iron Pot set from RJ Legend. Their pots feature a 100% cast iron material with 3 layers of enamel coating that is naturally non-stick! Moreover, the more you use your cast iron and cook with it, the more non-stick it becomes. What a cool feature. 


Perfect for any time of the year, this healthy yet filling recipe is the best one to start your New Year by creating the right healthy habits!
