This is a beautiful dish in both appearance and flavor. It makes the best of three vegetables that are at their best during summer -- tomatoes, zucchini, and eggplant -- and combines them with Herbes de Provence to meld the flavors together into the perfect summer vegetable dish.
It may look labor intensive, but once you start the process, it comes together quite easily. And it’s one of those rare dishes that tastes great hot, at room temperature, or cold, straight out of the fridge. What more you could want from your summer veggies?

Rice bowls are starting to be a big thing these days, and there's a good reason.

A fairly simple set of ingredients combines with a blend of Vanns spices to create a complex and hearty dish that your guests might not even realize is vegetarian. A perfectly poached egg on top means this dish can be enjoyed from breakfast to dinner.
A vegetable-forward enchilada recipe that doesn’t skimp on flavor.
A quick shirmp dish that builds flavor through the use of Asian aromatics, earthy turmeric, and spicy chili flakes. Combined with a refreshing slaw, it just needs a side of rice to make a complete meal.
Both of these recipes are kind of magical -- they take super simple ingredients like water, flour, butter, salt, and Vanns Smoked Spanish Paprika and turn them into beautiful, impressive golden brown focaccia and a deeply orange-red, perfectly flavored smoked paprika butter to be spread on top. It makes a great appetizer for any occasion, but be careful that your guests don’t fill themselves up on it! It’s a little bit addictive.
