With an abundance of zucchini from the garden in the summer, our family collected many recipes while I was growing up. This one has been in our family for about 40 years and is a favorite to eat cold as a snack on some great crunchy chips or crackers. The addition of the cider vinegar and curry powder makes this recipe completely different from the traditional French version.

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir eggplant, zucchini, onion, celery, and red bell pepper until tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Add cider vinegar, tomato paste, garlic, curry powder, salt, and oregano; simmer until liquid is slightly reduced, 5 to 10 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Eliminating the eggplant and doubling the zucchini works wonderfully.

This freezes quite well too, although it may become a bit watery and require stirring upon thawing.

Substitute tomato sauce for the tomato paste, if desired. Simmer time will be longer.
