  • Sweet peppers
  • Summer Squash e.g. zucchini &/or pattypan
  • Onion
  • Garlic (optional)
  • Tomatoes (optional)
  • Carrots (optional)
  • Eggplant
  • Sweet Corn (optional)
  • Olive oil (a splash)
  • Tamari or sea salt(optional)



  1. Chop ingredients and place in a pot with just a little water over a medium flame.
  2. Cook to taste.
  3. The eggplant will take from 20 minutes to a half hour to cook. If it seems a little watery, just drain it a bit! Or have it as soup! Add a spash of oil AFTER having cooked the dish. You may want to add a dash of tamari, for flavor or sea salt. It tastes even better if you let it sit for a day or two and also freezes nicely. You can serve this with brown rice, or millet (which absorbs flavors like a sponge ) and yogurt sauce. You can also eat this with browned, ground meat or roasted
