Vegetable Medley

BY Mollie Ann Smith ON August 12, 2013

This side dish makes good use of the yield from your late-summer garden. Serve hot or cold. 6 servings.


  • 3 medium zucchini (7 to 8 inches) or 5 small ones
  • (4 to 5 inches); yellow squash may be substituted
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 bell pepper seeded and cut into strips
  • 6 trimmed, thinly sliced green onions, tops included
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon toasted cumin seeds, ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Wash and thinly slice squash; set aside. Prepare all other vegetables; set aside.
  2. To toast cumin seeds: Heat a heavy skillet over low heat. Add the cumin seeds and shake the skillet periodically. After about 5 minutes, about the time the toasting smell is noticeable, take the skillet off the heat. Pour the seeds into a mortar and allow to cool.
  3. Heat a non-stick skillet or wok over medium heat. Add oil. When the oil is very hot, add peppers, onions, and garlic. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add zucchini and tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes more.
  4. Grind cool cumin seeds with pestle or use a spice grinder.
  5. Remove vegetable mixture from skillet to serving dish, sprinkle with ground cumin, salt, and pepper.
