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 lately have a little time, I had been looking on the web a few days ago. In search of new, fascinating thoughts, inspiring dishes that We have never tested before, to treat my family with. Searching for a while but couldn’t find lots of interesting stuff. Right before I thought to give up on it, I stumbled on this delicious and easy dessert simply by accident over Suncakemom. The dessert seemed so fabulous on its photos, it required urgent actions.

It absolutely was simple enough to imagine just how it is made, its taste and just how much my hubby will probably enjoy it. Mind you, it is extremely simple to keep happy the man in terms of cakes. Anyways, I visited the blog and used the detailed instuctions that had been coupled with great graphics of the task. It really makes life quite easy. I could imagine that it is a slight effort to take photographs in the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you normally have sticky hands and so i highly appreciate the time and effort she placed in to make this post .

With that in mind I’m empowered to present my very own recipe in a similar fashion. Many thanks for the concept.

I was tweaking the initial formula to make it for the taste of my family. Need to tell you it turned out an incredible outcome. They loved the flavor, the thickness and loved having a treat like this during a stressful workweek. They quite simply requested lots more, a lot more. Thus the next time I’m not going to commit the same mistake. I am likely to double the volume .

The original lecho recipe is provided by 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.
