Several different dishes are called "mixed vegetables"; they all consist primarily of different kinds of vegetables cut into pieces and mixed together, then either served as-is or else cooked, typically by sautéing.
The Albanian mixed vegetables dish Turli perimesh has the following recipe:
- 2 lbs of various vegetables (peppers, eggplant, okra, zucchini, potatoes, etc.)
- 1/2 cup oil, divided
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1 cup peeled chopped tomatoes
- 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
After cutting off inedible tips of vegetables, wash and slice them into 1-inch squares. Sauté vegetables in half the oil and remove them from the frying pan. Sauté onion and tomatoes in the remaining oil, and season with parsley, salt, and pepper. Put everything in a stock pot with a cup of water, cover tightly, and simmer until almost all moisture has cooked away. Serve hot, accompanied by steak, meatballs, or any other main dish. Serves 4 people.
