2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
seasonings, as desired (hot paprika, herbs, ginger, etc)
sea salt
freshly ground peppercorns
1-2 teaspoons unsalted butter or extra virgin olive oil
1-2 slices whole grain bread or buns
2-3 tablespoons red wine
lots of snipped fresh basil or parsley

Wash, cut up vegetables slicing them at an angle. Heat a saute pan or stir-fry pan over medium high heat. Add oil. Add vegetables. Cook and stir to your desired doneness, 3 - 5 minutes. Remove vegetables to a serving platter and season as desired. Return pan to heat, add 1 - 2 teaspoons butter or olive oil. Grill the bread slices on both sides briefly and remove to vegetable platter. Add the wine to the hot skillet and using a silicone spatula stir the mixture, bringing up any browned bits in the pan while reducing the mixture slightly.
