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 most recently have a little time, I was looking on the web last week. In need of fresh, exciting tips, inspirational recipes that I’ve never used before, to astonish my family with. Hunting for quite some time yet could not discover too many interesting things. Right before I thought to give up on it, I stumbled on this scrumptious and easy treat by accident over Suncakemom. It looked so delightful on its pic, that called for urgent actions.

It was not difficult to imagine how it’s made, its taste and just how much my husband is going to love it. Mind you, it is very easy to keep happy the man in terms of treats. Yes, I’m a blessed one. Or possibly he is.Anyways, I went to the webpage and simply used the detailed instuctions which were coupled with wonderful pictures of the process. It just makes life less difficult. I can suppose it is a slight inconvenience to shoot pics in the midst of baking in the kitchen as you will often have sticky hands so I pretty appreciate the hard work she put in to make this blogpost .

Having said that I am inspired presenting my own formulas in a similar way. Many thanks for the thought.

I had been tweaking the main recipe create it for the taste of my family. I can tell you it turned out an awesome outcome. They enjoyed the flavour, the consistency and loved having a sweet such as this in the midst of a stressful workweek. They quite simply asked for more, many more. Hence next time I am not going to commit the same miscalculation. I am going to multiply the amount to make them happy.

This was made possible through SunCakeMom who provided the original Lecho Recipe.

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.
