This is a great fall dinner food. Most everything is in season. You can add more eggplant if you want, or leave out the yellow squash and add more zucchini if that is all you have. I like it with less bell peppers, so I just added 1 cup instead of two. Delicious served with bread.
1/4 cup olive oil, plus more as needed
1 1/2 cups small diced yellow onion
1 tsp minced garlic
2 cups medium diced eggplant, skin on (1 medium eggplant)
1/2 tsp fresh thyme leaves (1/8 tsp dried)
1 cup diced green bell peppers
1 cup diced red bell peppers
1 cup diced zucchini squash (1 zucchini)
1 cup diced yellow squash (1 yellow squash)
1 1/2 cups peeled, seeded and chopped tomatoes (1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes)
1 Tbs thinly sliced fresh basil leaves (1 tsp dried)
1 Tbs chopped fresh parsley leaves (1 tsp dried)
salt and pepper to taste
Set a large sauté pan over medium heat and add olive oil.
Once hot, add onions and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly caramelized, about 5-7 minutes.
Add the eggplant and thyme to pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until eggplant partially cooked, about 5 minutes.
Add green and red peppers, zucchini and squash to pan. Cook additional 5 minutes.
Add tomatoes, basil, parsley and salt and pepper to taste. Cook additional 5 minutes.
Serve hot or at room temp.
