  • Instructions

    1-Initial Prep: If you find eggplant slightly bitter, sprinkle diced pieces with salt and let them sit for about 20 minutes. Rinse and pat dry before cooking.

  • 2-Sautéing Basics: In a large pot or pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic, sautéing until they become translucent.

  • 3-Building Flavors: Stir in the tomato paste and mix until the onions and garlic are well-coated. Add the chopped tomatoes next and cook until they soften.

  • 4-Adding the Veggies: Incorporate the zucchinis, bell peppers, eggplant, green beans, and peas into the pot. Stir well, ensuring everything is combined.

  • 5-Simmering: Pour in the hot water, and season with salt and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover and let it simmer for about 20-25 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.

  • 6-Finishing Touches: Once cooked, stir in the fresh parsley, and give everything a final mix.

  • 7-Serving: Yaz Türlüsü can be served both warm or at room temperature. It pairs beautifully with a side of rice or fresh crusty bread.
