“This easy and tasty recipe defies classification and description...but here goes: It is a mixture of onion, carrot and potatoes boiled in tomato sauce with herbs. A girlfriend of mine, Flora, made it and served it with cornmeal-breaded fish. It was great!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil on medium-high in a heavy-bottomed saucepan.
  2. Add the onions and while they are cooking cut up the carrots. Then add them to the onions in the pot.
  3. While the carrots are cooking, peel and dice the potatoes.
  4. Stir them into the onion-carrot mixture.
  5. Add the sliced-up lemon (peel and all!), tomato sauce and seasonings.
  6. Cover and let boil for about 20 minutes, occasionally check it to guard against scorching (that's why you need a heavy bottomed saucepan!).
  7. When the potatoes are fork-tender, dinner's ready! Well, maybe not the whole dinner, but at least this side dish. You can either eat or discard the lemon pieces.
