  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, or to taste

  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced

  • 1 sweet onion (such as Vidalia®), thinly sliced

  • 1 (8 ounce) package assorted sliced mushrooms, or to taste

  • 3 cloves garlic, smashed and chopped

  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley

  • 1 tablespoon ketchup

  • 1 tablespoon dried basil

  • 2 teaspoons ground turmeric

  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin

  • 3 pinches cayenne pepper

  • 2 tablespoons water, or as needed (Optional)


  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté bell pepper and sweet onion in hot oil until softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir mushrooms and garlic into the pepper mixture; cook until garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute.

  2. Stir Worcestershire sauce, parsley, ketchup, basil, turmeric, red pepper flakes, cumin, and cayenne pepper into the pepper mixture.

  3. Place cover on the skillet and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer until mixture thickens, 20 to 30 minutes. If mixture is too dry, add water and stir.
