Salt and pepper

Method

1. Chop all the vegetables

2. Press the garlic with a knife or a heavy weight.

3. Drizzle the bottom of a saucepan with olive oil and gently stir fry the onion and the garlic.

4. Once the onion becomes translucent, add the aubergines and stir fry for five minutes.

5. Add the peppers and zucchini and stir fry for a few more minutes..

6. Follow with the zucchini, stir fry for a few more minutes.

7. Add the fresh tomatoes and a spoon of Provencal herbs (or basil), one cube of chicken stock and stir well.
