Wash all the vegetables. Chop the onion, eggplant, zucchini and peppers into medium-size pieces. Drain and wash the beans. Finely chop the garlic. Chop the dried chilli and set aside. Grate the tomato.
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a frying pan and sauté the onion until it is transparent. Add the garlic and dried chilli (first try 1/6 of the chilli, you can always add more later) together with the tomatoes, vegetable broth and 175ml of hot water. Bring it to a boil. Add the rest of the vegetables and the corn. Let it cook for 20 minutes over medium heat without letting it boil too aggressively until the vegetables are tender. Add the beans and season to taste.
Place the rice in a small pot and add 1 part of water for 1 part of rice. Cover the pot and bring it to a boil. Once the water boils, turn off the heat and keep it covered for 5-10 minutes. Take the lid off and stir the rice.
