Ingredients:

two Zucchini -two  Onion

three-four cloves of Garlic

one Egg-Plant – two Pepper-Bells

two Carrots – two Potatoes

half glass of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

two pinches of Marine Salt – half glass of Sugar

a quarter of glass of Balsamic Vinegar

 

 

 

Start washing the Vegetables

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

peel the Pepper Bells

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

also peel of the skin of the Potatoes

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

clean the Onions from the dry skin and roots

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

peel the Garlic too.

cut-off the top and the bottom of Zucchini

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and we are ready to go!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

add half glass of Extra Virgin Olive Oil to a fry-pan

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

cut in small cubes the Potatoes

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

put the Potatoes to fry: just cut in small pieces to cook’em earlier

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

cut in cubes the Pepper-Bells: choose of different colors so they are beautiful to see…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

put to fry with the Potatoes

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

mix Potatoes and Pepper-Bells

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

cut the Carrots in small cubes…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…and the Egg-Plant too.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

drop Pepper-Bells and Egg-Plant in to the fry-pan

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is time for the Onion now: chop in slices…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…and put to fry!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

mix well everything…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

cut the Zucchini in cubes…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

add Zucchini to the mixture.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

the last will be the Garlic: this in order to avoid that Garlic burn giving a taste too bitter to the mixture, chop Garlic small…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…add the Garlic now! (if you are allergic or you don’t like Garlic, do not use it!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

add a good pinch of Marine Salt.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Marine Salt improves the taste and keeps the colors alive…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

stir well using a wooden tool

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

we are going to add half glass of Brown Sugar

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

spread the Sugar on top of the Vegetables

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

then stir well mixing everything

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

it is time for the Balsamic Vinegar: a quarter of glass should be enough.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

add the Balsamic Vinegar

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

immediately stir mixing everything…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…and put a cover.

leave cook covered for two-three minutes, after that open, stir and cook leaving a small opening so the steam will go out: if you keep the lid on your preparation will be too liquid.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I want to dry more my Vegetables: I cook them without lid.

You should check for the taste: you can still add more Salt or Sugar or Balsamic Vinegar if you like, check also if Vegetables are cooked: use your mouth, not the watch!

 

 

 

 

 

 

set in a plate, spread a bit of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and…voila’! it’s ready to go, warm or cold doesn’t matter: it’s too good!!!
