Preparation

Step 1

Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Cut the eggplant into small pieces, add to the pan, and season with salt. Fry until soft and slightly browned. Then transfer to a plate and set aside.

Step 2

Dice the zucchini and fry for about 3 to 4 minutes. Season with salt and then transfer to a plate as well.

Step 3

Now chop the onion and bell peppers and fry in the pan. Chop the garlic, add it to the pan, and continue to fry everything together for about 3 minutes.

Step 4

Quarter the tomatoes and add them to the pan with their juice, tomato paste, thyme, and salt. Cook until the tomatoes break down into a sauce.

Step 5

Add the pre-cooked zucchini and eggplant pieces to the pan. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer uncovered for another 5 minutes.
