A Rainbow Of Grilled Peppers

If you can't get fresh oregano to sprinkle on the peppers, fresh basil or parsley is just fine.

Type: Vegetables
Courses: Starters and appetizers
Serves: 8 people

Recipe Ingredients

2   Red bell peppers
2   Orange bell peppers
2   Yellow bell peppers
2 tablespoons 30mlOlive oil
  Salt - to taste
  Freshly-ground black pepper - to taste
3   Garlic cloves - thinly sliced (large)
1 tablespoon 15mlDrained large capers
1 tablespoon 15mlWhole fresh oregano leaves
8   Peasant bread - toasted

Recipe Instructions

To roast the peppers: Cut off the stems, then cut the peppers in half lengthwise. Core, seed and carefully trim off all of the inner white connective tissue. Lay the pepper halves skin-side up in a single layer on a baking sheet. Broil about 3 inches from the heat until the skins are charred black, 12 to 15 minutes.

Remove the peppers from the broiler and place them in a paper or plastic bag; seal tightly and let the peppers steam inside the bag for about 15 minutes. Then slip off the charred skins and proceed with the recipe.

Arrange the peppers decoratively on a platter. Drizzle with the oil; season with salt and pepper.

Place garlic slivers attractively around the peppers. Scatter with the capers and sprinkle generously with the oregano leaves. Serve the toasted peasant bread alongside the peppers in a napkin-lined basket.
