The rarest of all recipes, a vegan French dish! Serve this with baked potatoes or just good crusty bread.
this was excellent. instead of cooking the veggies individually, i just threw them in a pot after cooking the onions and garlic and simmered on medium low for a while. they turned out perfect. top this with a little parmesean cheese and it is delicious. - 26 May 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
If you need a kick of veggies, you can make this a healthy meal in itself!! I used what I had in the house and for veggies only used 1 zucchini, 2 eggplants (I cubed the eggplant then lightly coated with salt and drained in a collander for an hour before cooking), 1 red pepper and substituted 2 cans of drained tomatoes for the fresh. Also added 1 1/2 cups mushrooms too. I also reduced the oil significantly, adding only a splash of oil (and a spray of nonstick cooking spray) each time sauteeing. Didn't have bay leaf or thyme so I used fresh basil and dried oregano and parsley instead. Still turned out divine! Also, be sure to remove the large pot with sauteed onions and garlic from heat until you finish adding all the other veggies (I have a gas range and the onions ended up burning, even on low heat!) Serve with parmesan cheese on top to make it extra nice! - 12 Oct 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
My husband said, "keep this recipe around." I made some adjustments based on taste and what I had available: -no eggplant (not a family fave) -I added leeks, diced small red potatoes, orange-yellow-red bell peppers for color -Like others, I just sauteed all the veggies together -I used organic canned diced tomatoes instead of fresh..it adds a nice bit of liquid -I used fresh basil since I had it on hand -I added a can of garbanzo beans near the end of cooking for some extra substance -I served it over brown rice -Shaved parmesan cheese added a bit of cheesiness that my daughter seems to need for her veggies It's definitely a keeper, and possibly once a week while the summer veggies are abundant and cheap - 17 Jun 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
