This is a French summertime preparation, made with fresh seasonal vegetables. It can be served cold with sesame buns or served hot with yellow rice.
Now add in the eggplants and braise them (cook till the skin blisters). You'll want to cook them quite slowly, as this makes it taste best. Stir for a minute or so.
Having braised the eggplants, add in the zucchini. Toss in a little salt to draw water out of the zucchinis. Also, add the bell pepper strips. Stir vigorously. Cover the pot and let the vegetables "sweat" over a low flame for a few minutes.
Now add in a teaspoon of salt. Stir. Add the tomatoes, and then add in the parsley. Stir. Cover the pot and cook for about 3 more minutes.
If you are not used to bitter foods, you will probably want to degorge the eggplants, which means to remove their bitterness by rubbing them in salt and then soaking them in water.
