- cup (180 ml) olive oil
- 3 cups (450 g) chopped eggplant, cut into 1-inch cubes

- 1 teaspoons dried oregano
- teaspoon salt
- teaspoon pepper
Heat the oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat.
Add the eggplant, zucchini, onion, peppers, and garlic.
Saute for 15 to 20 minutes, turning with a spatula from time to time so all the vegetables come in contact with the olive oil.
Once the vegetables are all starting to look about half-cooked, add the tomatoes (including the liquid), olives, oregano, salt, and pepper.
Stir it all together, cover, turn the heat to low, and let the whole thing simmer for 40 minutes or so.

You want to use your largest skillet for this dish? possibly even your wok, if you have one. This amount of veggies will cause even a 10-inch (25-cm) skillet to nearly overflow. And don't be afraid to toss in a little more olive oil if you need it while sauteing.
