Mixed vegs in a tomato sauce



  • Mixed Peppers
  • Courgettes
  • Onions ( red are nicer - not so bitter, but white will do)
  • Mushrooms
  • Cauliflower ( not a usual addition but tastes lovely)
  • Tinned tomatoes
  • Butter
  • Garlic ( ready made garlic butter good )
  • Olive oil


Wash veg

Chop up Peppers, chunky is nice. Get rid of the seeds and stalky bits

Chop and slice onions and mushrooms

Slice courgettes - throw away the bits at the ends

Place in bowl and put to one side

Put pan on low/ medium heat

Add splash of olive oil about a table spoon of butter. Olive oil stops the butter burning - keep on low / med heat

Add all the veg and stir to avoid burning

When the cougettes and onions are starting to look clear - after maybe 5 - 10 mins, add the tinned tomatoes. You can chop the tomoatoes in the tin first before adding to the veg. Turn heat a bit lower and the tomatoes will 'reduce'and make a thicker sauce. You can add water if it is becoming too thick. Add extra seasoning if you like - ie black pepper, chopped garlic, mixed herbs

Will probably take about 30 mins but do a taste test to see if it tastes OK

Serve with garlic bread

Also as a suggestion eat with plain cooked pasta

Leave on lower heat for about half hour or until you
