This recipe is based off of medium sized vegetables, I am not including specific measurements of each type of vegetable because the point is to use the whole thing so nothing goes to waste. You may need to slightly increase or decrease the amount of oil and spices you add depending on the size of your vegetables.
*You can also use 1-2 cans of crushed tomatoes
**If you would like the vegetables to maintain some crunch take them out after 40 minutes, if you want them to be softer and more like a sauce keep them cooking for 60 minutes.
