Moroccan Ratatouille - pareve

2 eggplants, cut in 1/2 inch - 1 cm cubes
2 zucchini, cut in 1/2 inch - 1 cm slices
(I'd cube larger zucchini)
olive oil
2 bell pepper, cut in half, seeded and cut into thin slices
1 large onion, cut in half and sliced
5 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 1/2 lbs (750 g) tomatoes, peeled and chopped
salt and pepper
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 cup flat-leafed parsley or fresh coriander, chopped

Sprinkle the eggplants with salt and leave for 1 hour to draw out the juices. Rinse and dry eggplant. Very briefly shallow-fry the eggplant cubes in hot oil until lightly browned. Drain on paper towels. Repeat procedure with zucchini slices. Fry the onion and pepper over gentle heat in 3 tablespoons oil until the onion is golden and the pepper is soft.

Make the tomato sauce: Fry the garlic in 2 tablespoons of oil until golden. Add the tomatoes, salt, pepper, and sugar and simmer about 20 minutes until reduced to a thick sauce. Add the fried vegetables and the chopped parsley or coriander to the saucepan with the tomato sauce. Mix well. Remove from heat.

Can be eaten hot or cold.
