In this recipe, I used loads of fresh veggies such as onion, zucchinis, carrots, and three types of peppers: these gorgeous red sweet mini peppers, bell peppers and spicy hungarian peppers.

Sweet Mini Peppers

I found the hungarian peppers at the farmers market and just fell in love with their cuteness and gorgeous hues of red, purple and green. On the spicy scale, they rank similar to jalapeno, and I don’t find them too spicy when the seeds are removed. They just add a nice kick to the dish!

Hungarian Peppers

This dish is so easy to prepare, perfect for a busy weeknight. You simply fry all your veggies. While it is cooking, you mix 4 ingredients in your blender to make the sauce. You finally pour the sauce on the fried veggies, cook it for a few more minutes and there you have a delicious, colourful and healthy meal.
