  • 1 large onion, roughly chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2/3 cup olive oil, preferably French or Spanish
  • ½ lb. zucchini, thickly sliced
  • 1 large green bell pepper, seeded and roughly chopped

  • 2 tbsp. chopped fresh herbs, parsley, basil, tarragon, oregano
  • Salt and pepper

Cooking Instructions:

  • Halve the eggplants, then slice thickly.
  • If the eggplants are large, you will need to extract the bitter juices.
  • To do this, sprinkle the cut surfaces generously with salt and secure between 2 large plates.
  • After 20 minutes a clear liquid will emerge. Rinse well in cold water to remove the salt and dry well.
  • Soften the onion and garlic in olive oil for 6-8 minutes. Add the eggplant, zucchini, green bell pepper, tomatoes and olive oil paste (if using).
  • Simmer, uncovered, for about 40 minutes.
  • To finish, stir in the vinegar and herbs.
