Stew of celery, potato, eggplant, zucchini and yellow squash

Stew of celery, potato, eggplant, zucchini and yellow squash

I had a huge dental operation. Besides the breathtaking pain and medical bill, I have to suffer at least two weeks of soft food. Soft as no need to use teeth.

For almost a week, I eat vegetable stews, and I am still not fed up.

The cooking method is real simple, put chopped vegetables in pot, add oil, cover, cooking for 5 to ten minutes. Vegetable become soft. Add salt and pepper at the end or on table when serving.

I feel this is far from the authentic trained cooking method. However, it comes out always right. My vegetables have never betrayed me. Each time they surprise me how good the real flavor of its own good.

Here is this disastrous looking but fantastic tasting dish.
