So I used three medium-sized onions, two white and one red, but you can use the same way, it doesn’t matter. And the same amount of pepper, that is, three pieces, which can be of different types or the same type.

And because it is not the season of tomatoes, I preferred canned tomatoes, because they are much more flavoured than those in the supermarket.

And because I said we will make a vegetable stew with eggs, we also need 4 eggs.

And Now Let’s Prepare the Best Vegetable Stew Recipe

For this, I use a pot pan, in which I heat three tablespoons of sunflower oil on it. The original recipe uses pork lard, but you can also use olive oil.

When the oil has warmed, put the sliced onion to fry.

Fry for another minute or two, until the onion becomes transparent, it should not fry too hard.

I seasoned with a tablespoon of sea salt and I put a lid over the pan. Salted vegetables, under steam, will release their water faster, but do not forget to stir from time to time.
