Italian-NZ Vegan Casserole

Italian tomatoes and NZ Vegemite... Is it fusion? 

Well, the pot is French too... :-)! I chopped some vegetables (agria potatoes,
carrot, onion, celery -with leaves-) added one fresh yellow chili and some Italian parsley, then sauteed everything with 2 tbsp of olive oil. Then I added one can of Italian cherry tomatoes, one can of Italian chick peas, some water from rinsing both cans, and a little (very little) Vegemite. Simmer simmer simmer, until the potatoes start to mush and the carrots are soft. Then add salt to taste, and serve.

  1. The Cherry Tomatoes look fresh! I've never seen Tomatoes come out of a can looking like that.

  2. I only buy that brand of canned cherry tomatoes (and other types too, if I can), it is more expensive but worth it! I am a canned tomato snob, I don't buy cans unless what is inside is really worth the packaging and mileage.

  3. That's a great pot! And I've never seen canned cherry tomatoes!
