How to cook Vegetable stew from zucchini
This combination of zucchini, carrots, onions and tomato paste is just one of the few. There are many options for vegetable stew: with the addition of potatoes, sweet peppers, string beans, mushrooms, etc., as well as dry red wine and soy sauce.
Rinse and peel the zucchini. Remove the seeds if necessary; I have young zucchini, so I leave them. Cut into small, medium-sized cubes.
Peel and rinse the carrots. Grate coarsely.
Peel the onion and garlic and finely chop.
Heat 1-2 tablespoons of oil in a frying pan and fry the zucchini cubes over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring.
Next, add 100 ml of tomato paste. Also, if desired, you can add 2 chopped tomatoes. Simmer the vegetables in a little water and tomato paste.
Add salt, pepper and dried herbs to choose from. You can add sugar to taste (someone likes it). Mix everything well.
Bring to a small boil, then cover with a lid, leaving it slightly ajar to evaporate excess moisture. And continue to simmer for 40 minutes on low heat. Add a small amount of water as needed. At the end of quenching, add a bay leaf.
