No, I have never heard of friggione and did not get a clear definition in my search.  It seems to be a combination of simmering onions and tomatoes.  I considered potatoes to be the main part of this dish.  Whatever it is supposed to be, this is a hearty side or even a main dish.


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • medium potatoes, cubed 
  • large onions
  • red peppers (or one of each) or 2 green peppers or one of each)
  • 1 can tomatoes , diced
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • teaspoon sugar


  1. Heat oil in large fry pan. Non stick is best.
  2. Cut the potatoes into  cubes and slice the onions and peppers. 
  3. Add these to the hot oil and cover and cook over a low to moderate heat for about 20 minutes, stirring several times, until the vegetables are tender and lightly browned. Do not try to hurry this step by cooking on a high heat.
  4. Add the can of tomatoes and their juice.
  5. Cook uncovered for a further 15-30 minutes until the mixture darkens in colour and the liquid has reduced so that there is only a small amount left around the potatoes. Again do not use a high heat.

    Make sure the potatoes are cooked through.  If not, put in the oven until they are good for eating.

    Season to taste .


  1. That word looks very familiar to me but I just can't place it. Perhaps it's the spelling. Oh who cares, it looks and sounds delicious, Chaya.
