What you need:

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion, diced
1 medium eggplant (3/4 pound), diced
1 medium zucchini, quartered and diced
1 medium red bell pepper, diced
6 tomatoes (2 pounds), diced
1 teaspoon fresh oregano, roughly chopped
1 teaspoon fresh thyme, roughly chopped
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon capers, drained and roughly chopped
1/4 cup fresh basil, thinly sliced

What you do:

  1. In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Add eggplant and cook for 5 minutes. Add zucchini and bell pepper and cook for 10 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and cook for 5 more minutes. All vegetables should be tender.
