Ingredients
1 red bell pepper, sliced into chunks

2 red tomatoes, seeded and coarsely chopped
1 onion, peeled and sliced

Olive Oil
Celtic Salt
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
Herbs: (Alternatively, use Herbes de Provence)

2 tsp chopped basil
2 tsp chopped thyme

Parsley

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degree Fahrenheit.
2. Roast red pepper and yellow pepper for 20 minutes.
3. Using a non-stick pan, lightly sautéed minced garlic and onion with olive oil. Onion should be sautéed until they are soft before minced garlic is added as garlic brown easily and you would want to avoid the bitter taste.

6. Cover the pan with the lid. Allow the mixture to simmer until most of the liquid has evaporated.
7. Lower the temperature of the oven to 135 degree Fahrenheit.
8. Using a skillet, or any baking pan, spread around 80% mixture on the base of the pan evenly. Arrange eggplant, zucchini, carrot, summer squash, and roasted pepper into a spiral, alternating between different vegetables for a colorful palette. (Optional)
9. Sprinkle olive oil, crushed garlic and thyme before tucking an Aluminum foil tightly around the edges of the pan. Roast in the oven for 2 hours.
10.Remove the aluminum foil and roast for another ½ hour.
11.Transfer the contents to a grill for a more crispy texture. Lightly sprinkle vinaigrette (1 tsp balsamic vinegar, 1 tbsp olive oil, and thyme) on the sides. Enjoy!

    This recipe is very poorly written, so I don’t know if I made it correctly.

    Step 2 – I assumed I should use some oil/salt/pepper, but wasn’t sure.

    Step 3 – An approximate time to cook the onions would help.

    Step 6 – Again, an approx time would help.

    Step 7 – Celcius now? What happened to Fahrenheit?

    Step 8 – What do I do with the remaining 20%? I just put it all in the bottom

    We’re never told what to do with the basil, either, although from the picture it looks like it’s scattered on top.

    Mine turned out more like a stew, I assuming because the vegetables had so much water in them. Eggplant in particular contains a lot of water and it’s usually recommended to salt them and squeeze out the water.
