How to make it

  • Peel eggplant and cut into 1-inch cubes.
  • Put cubes in a large deep saucepan or casserole that will hold at least 16 cups.
  • Cut unpeeled potatoes into 1/2-inch cubes, slice peppers into 1-inch pieces and finely chop onion.
  • Add them to casserole.
  • Slice zucchini lengthwise into quarters, then slice it into 1/2-inch pieces and add to other vegetables.
  • Coarsely chop unpeeled tomatoes and add them along with any juices, or cut drained canned tomatoes into bite-size pieces and add.
  • Preheat oven to 375 F.
  • In a small bowl, stir garlic with oil and all seasonings.
  • Add mixture to casserole and stir vigorously until vegetables are evenly coated.
  • Place casserole in oven and bake, uncovered, for 1 1/2 hours.
  • Stir at least every half hour.
  • Vegetables at the top will appear to dry out but will actually take on a little roasted taste.
  • Baking uncovered also allows some vegetables juices to evaporate, and concentrated vegetable juices will be soakd up by eggplantand and zucchini.
  • Remove hot casserole from oven.

  • t's wonderful sprinkles with lots of chopped fresh basil, coriander or parsley.
  • GREAT ADDITION: Stir together 1/2 cup chopped parsley, 3 cloves minced fresh garlic and the finely grated peel of 1 lemon, then sprinkleover top of hot casserole just before serving.
