Ingredients

2 tbsp olive oil 30 mL
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1 onions, finely chopped 200 g
1 1/2 cup green/snap beans 150 g
2 zucchini, cut into 1,5 cm dices 260 g
1 aubergines / eggplants, small size, cut into 1,5 cm dices 180 g
1 yellow or red sweet peppers, cut into 1,5 cm squares 200 g
1 cup canned tomatoes (diced) 260 g
3 cups red beans (canned), rinsed and drained 750 mL
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
1 pinch cayenne pepper [optional] 0.2 g

Method

  1. Mince or press the garlic and chop the onion. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook the garlic and onion 4-5 min until lightly coloured and soft, paying attention not to let them burn.
  2. Prepare the vegetables. Boil or steam the green beans. Drain, cut into 2 cm pieces, and set aside.
  3. Dice the remaining vegetables into 1,5 cm pieces and add to the saucepan with the garlic and onion. Sauté 4-5 min, then add the tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the optional cayenne.
  4. Cook over low heat, covered, 20-25 min until all vegetables are soft but still a bit al dente. Add water, if necessary, to keep the mixture moist.
  5. Add the previously cooked green beans, the red beans, then cook an additional 5 min. Adjust the seasoning, then serve.
