This stew is prepared simply and quickly, it has everything a person needs to have a happy winter or late autumn: a consistency from potatoes, some vitamins miraculously left in peppers and onions, jam to these two and the scent of parsley.

All you have to do to get it is peel the vegetables, cut the potatoes in half and then cut them into thin slices, to penetrate quickly. Peel the onion and cut it into scales and the pepper, cleaned of seeds, should be cut into cubes. Put them all in the pot from the beginning, with a tablespoon or two of oil.
