Quick and easy vegetable stew made out of onion, pepper, paprika and tomato. It’s an excellent company for meat dishes but it can stand on its own too.

As I currently have some time, I was browsing on the web last week. Looking to find fresh, interesting ideas, inspiring meals that I’ve never tasted before, to treat my loved ones with. Looking for a long time yet couldn’t find lots of interesting things. Right before I thought to give up on it, I discovered this scrumptious and easy dessert by chance on Suncakemom. It seemed so tempting

on its photo, that required instant action.

It had been not so difficult to imagine the way it is created, its taste and just how much my hubby will probably enjoy it. Mind you, it is quite simple to please him in terms of puddings. Anyways, I went to the website and used the step by step instuctions that had been coupled with superb photos of the operation. It just makes life rather easy. I can imagine that it is a slight inconvenience to shoot photographs in the midst of cooking in the kitchen because you usually have gross hands so that i genuinely appreciate the time and energy she put in to build this blogpost .

Having said that I am inspired to present my very own dishes in a similar fashion. Many thanks the idea.

I was tweaking the original mixture create it for the taste of my family. I must mention that it was a great outcome. They loved the flavour, the consistency and loved having a sweet like this during a busy workweek. They ultimately demanded lots more, a lot more. Hence next time I am not going to commit the same mistake. I’m going to multiply the amount .

Lecso is from suncakemom.

Heat the oil in a large pan then add onion and sprinkle salt on top.Lecho-recipe-process

Saute it until it gets a translucent / glassy look. It should be done in 3-5 minutes on high heat while continuously stirring.

Add pepper and mix it well with the onion. Keep sauteing while stirring every now and again for another 3-5 minutes until the onion starts to get brown.

Add garlic and optionally zucchini or egg plant. Mix it well with the onion and pepper then keep sauteing for 2-3 minutes until garlic gives out its scent.

Sprinkle the paprika on top then add chopped tomatoes or tomato sauce.

Add some (about ½ cup) water to it, just to make sure the paprika won’t burn down. If tomato sauce is used then this step can be skipped entirely.

Mix everything together well then put the lid on and cook it for 5 – 10 minutes until all the vegetables are tender but still firm enough.
