Each Wednesday, our CSA box arrives – overflowing with all sorts of seasonal goodness. Carrots, kale, apples - all the old standbys. This past week, we had a new addition – sweet yellow peppers. I have to admit, I was a bit stumped at first. What to do with these little golden beauties? I am not a big fan of raw peppers – a bit to waxy and tough for my liking (unless well hidden in a chopped salad). They were too small to be stuffed. Roasting them is always a tasty alternative but I was looking for something a bit lighter. Once again, Nigel Slater’s book Tender undefined provided some much needed inspiration. I ended up playing with his baked pepper recipe a bit, making use of what I had on hand. The prep work was simple and quick – the outcome delicious. I ended up eating mine straight out of the pan. But it would also make for a great sandwich with goat cheese or over some brown rice with sautéed greens. Food for thought.
- 5 small to medium size peppers
- 2 medium tomatoes
- olive oil
- pinch of salt & pepper
- balsamic vinegar
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. 2. Cut the peppers in half, remove the stems and seeds and place cut-side up in a heavy-duty baking dish. 3. Slice the tomatoes into quarters or eighths. Sprinkle them with a pinch of salt & pepper before layering them in and around the peppers. 4. Pour a little olive oil on each. 5. Bake for about 45 minutes, until the peppers and tomatoes are soft. 6. Drizzle with a bit of balsamic vinegar before serving.
