Sataras is a delicious, vegan dish made of peppers, onions, tomatoes and olive oil. The longer you cook it, the better it tastes. You can let this cook on low while you do other things. It is is very similar to the Hungarian dish Lescos (minus the bacon) or the Turkish Dish, Imam Bayildi which essentially has Sataras on top of roasted eggplant with a drizzle of lemon, oil and a sprinkle of pine nuts. Imam Bayildi also has significantly more oil. Sataras is a great side dish or a tasty appetizer if you serve it with pita or toasted bread. For a complete vegetarian meal, serve it with fresh mozzarella and a side of salad. This dish went well with the other Croatian dish we made, cevapi. It is frequently served with grilled meats, rice or as a condiment. We loved this dish.
