Peperonata - peppers cooked with tomatoes and sliced onions Directions

  1. Wash and dry the bell peppers. Lay the peppers on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Preheat oven to 200°C and roast the vegetables for about 30 minutes turning them 2 or 3 times so they get evenly cooked. Take out the tray from the oven and, being careful not to burn yourself, immediately cover the peppers with foil. Let them rest for 15 minutes. Remove the aluminum foil. Gently peel the peppers, remove stems and seeds and cut them into long stripes. Set aside.

  2. Slice the onions, garlic and cut the tomatoes in half.

  3. Heat the pan and cook the onions and garlic with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, stirring occasionally, until translucent for 3 – 4 minutes on medium heat. Add salt, sugar and vinegar and stir to combine for about 1 minute.

  4. Add the peppers and tomatoes. Cover the pan and cook on medium heat stirring occasionally for 8 - 10 minutes over medium heat. Add more salt and pepper if necessary and serve.
