    BecR's Note:

    A good veggie filling for an omelette or a rustic tart; can be served either warm or cold. This recipe makes alot, so you may want to halve it, -or-, freeze it in portions. From 'Modern French Classics' by Camille Le Foll.

    1. 1
      Rinse and dice the aubergines (eggplants). Place in a colander, sprinkle with salt. After 1 hour, rinse under running water and blot dry with paper towels.
    2. 2
      Peel and thinly slice the onions and garlic (remove the growing tip from the garlic). and fry lightly in olive oil, in a deep cooking pan, over medium heat. After a few minutes, add the diced aubergines.
    3. 3
      Rinse the peppers, remove the seeds and membrane and cut into fine strips. Add to the pan when the onions and aubergines are nicely browned. Add the thyme and rosemary sprigs, and season with salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      Peel the tomatoes and remove the seeds (I omit this step). Chop roughly.
    5. 5
      Rinse but do not peel the courgettes (zucchini) and cut into evenly sized pieces. Add the tomatoes and courgettes about 20 minutes after the seasoning, stir the contents of the pan and continue cooking until the vegetables have released their juices and begin to break down.
    6. 6
      Remove the herbs and adjust the seasoning before serving.

      Absolutely great & delightfully French! I cut the recipe in half & it still made alot, so I caution you if you choose to make the whole thing you'll have a ton to eat off of. ;-)

      This recipe was a delight---to make as well as to eat. Very subtle flavors of herbs; flavorful blend of veggies--added to the skillet in perfect order and cooked to perfection. NO changes to suggest! :-) Loved it! BTW, I didn't seed the tomatoes, either. LOL
