Summertime Goulash... Its not just Hungarian!

Goulash is a stew or soup filled with meat and vegetables. So, you decide which. You can do either meat or vegetables or or both. When I was growing up, my mother always made her delicious summertime goulash using zucchini, green or red pepper, red or purple onion and fresh garden tomatoes. 

For this dish you will need: 3 or 4 medium size zucchini, one green or red pepper, red or purple onion and about 6 medium size tomatoes (you can cheat and use a large can of diced tomatoes). 

To begin, saute chopped onion and pepper in olive oil. Wash and dice the zucchini to add to the pot and of course the tomatoes as well as fresh dried herbs: rosemary, mint, basil and oregano. 

Let this simmer for about 50 min. During that time, if it looks like it lacks liquid, add a bit of beef or chicken stock; and, for thicker consistency just drop in 1 tbs of tomato paste.

Serve with a green salad and bread...
