Into a pan; heat the olive oil, add in the garlic, onions, red peppers and sauté until the red peppers and onions are well roasted.
Add in the grated courgettes (zucchini) and stir fry for a few seconds until lightly softened. Allow the mixture to cool completely.
Into a large bow, stir the sautéed vegetables, the potatoes and the remaining ingredients. You can use a stand mixer or even use your hands to mix them all together.
