1 large aubergine

2 small courgettes

2 peppers (red or yellow)

4 large tomatoes

1 medium onion

1 tbsp red-wine vinegar

2-3 garlic cloves

1 tsp sugar

bunch of basil leaves

olive oil

Cut aubergines, courgettes and peppers into small chunks. Remove skins from tomatoes (place them first into bowl of boiling water)and chop them randomly. , chop onion, crush garlic.

Heat a tablespoon of olive oil on a large pan; place courgettes, saute for 5 minutes and remove from the pan. Repeat the same with peppers and aubergines. Be careful not to overcook the veggies, only soften them, they also should get a little golden-brown on each side.

Cook the onion on the pan for a few minutes together with garlic. Stir in sugar and vinegar, add tomatoes and a few leaves of chopped basil. Return the rest of vegetables to the pan, season with salt and pepper, cook for another 5 minutes. Might add some extra vinegar, for stronger flavors.
