- 1 onion
- 2 red peppers

- black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika

Start by chopping all the vegetables into small cubes.
Heat two tablespoons of olive oil in a pan, and add the onion as soon as the oil gets hot. Stir-fry over low/medium heat until it starts getting translucent.
Add the rest of the vegetables, and mix well. Cook until soft, stirring occasionally.
