Baked Zucchini (Fırında Kabak)

Veggies! I love vegetables. They are healthy, full of vitamins and succulent. This is a very light and a healthy dish. It goes very well with Turkish rice.

7 small zucchinis
1 large red bell pepper (sliced lengthwise)
1 green bell pepper (sliced lengthwise)
2 carrots (sliced)
2 juicy tomatoes (sliced)
½ white onion (sliced)
4 garlic cloves (crushed)
1 tsp. tomato sauce
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 cup hot water
Pinch of salt
½ tsp ground black pepper

Scrape zucchinis with a knife and slice horizontal in large chunks. Place in a Pyrex dish and add the peppers, onions, carrots, tomatoes and garlic. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Mix all vegetables so that salt and pepper are all over the veggies. Dissolve the tomato paste with the water and pour all over the vegetables. Drizzle with olive oil. Preheat oven to 350º and place Pyrex dish in the middle rack of the oven. Once the water in the vegetables starts to boil, cover with an aluminum foil. Bake for 1 hour or until the vegetables are tender.
