Glimpsing at the recipes I've posted so far, I've realized that zucchini are one of the ingredients I've used the most. I've stuffed them with different mixtures, baked a few kinds of muffins, pizza, cooked some stews, even a purée... Today, I decided to share with you this easy-to-make stir-fry recipe, which can also be called a stew... It doesn't really matter what it is... What counts is its inviting aroma, refreshing flavor and creamy texture, and all of that for quite a low price!
I made this for the first time last summer, as an "upgraded" version of my Summer Stew, and we all liked it a lot, so I had to share the recipe with you here! :) Grab just a couple of ingredients, and your lunch will be ready in less than 30 minutes! This is what you'll need:
- Peel zucchini if you prefer. Remove the seeds using a small spoon. Dice the flesh.
Peel and finely chop tomatoes. Do not discard the seeds!
Dice the peppers. I used red wax peppers this time, but bell peppers are also fine. You can use any color you want.
- Put oil into a deep pan and heat it over medium fire. Add peppers and a pinch of salt and cook until tender, stirring often. Then, stir zucchini in and continue cooking for a couple more minutes.
- Now, add tomatoes and simmer for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until you get the desired thickness. You can let all of the liquid vapor and get a classic stir-fry, or leave some and make a stew-like dish. I prefer the second option myself.
- Alter the taste with some more salt and add some parsley, if you wish. Remove from fire.
Serve warm, with your favorite bread. I would strongly recommend that you serve some sour cream, white brined cheese or cottage cheese along it. Those will complement the flavor perfectly.
Enjoy and bon appétit!
