This isn’t really a formal recipe post but more of a suggestion for what you can do with summer veggies- stew them in herbs, oil and their own wonderful juices. Read on to find out how.
Use a large saute pan to heat some oil, then add freshly cut vegetables such as zucchini, other types of squash, tomatoes, beans and garlic. Add fresh herbs, if you have them otherwise use dried- plus salt and pepper. Once they’re slightly browned, cover the pan and let them cook in their juices on low heat, also known as ‘braising‘.
After about 10-20 minutes, you’ll have lovely soft vegetables that can be added to rice or pasta or eaten on their own with some yogurt. It’s one of the many wonderful ways to enjoy the summer harvest, especially when there’s such an abundance of it, masha’Allah.
