Mediterranean style vegetables are stir-fried for a quick and flavorful accompaniment to grilled chicken or beef.

Although this is somewhat reminiscent of ratatouille, there is no lengthy cooking time, and no eggplant, which isn’t a favorite vegetable in our house! It’s full of flavor, with plenty of garlic, onions, tangy Kalamata olives, and a handful of fresh basil.

Just like Asian Stir-fries, this cooks quickly, so have all the vegetables prepared before beginning. You can find pre-sliced onions and mushrooms to make this even faster. Although it may seem like a lot of steps, I add the vegetables one or two at a time depending on how long it takes to cook them. Start with the onions, which require more cooking time and finish with the olives, which just need a minute to heat up.
