Peppers

2 large red peppers
2 large yellow peppers
2 large green peppers
extra virgin olive oil

Marinade

1 – 2 chillies, charred
3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
2 sprigs thyme
2 Tbsp (30 ml) white balsamic vinegar or rice wine vinegar
¼ C (60 ml) olive oil
black pepper, to taste
2 Tbsp (30 ml) parsley, roughly chopped, to serve

Peppers

Preheat the oven to 200 °C.

Rub the peppers with olive oil, and place on an oven tray. Roast in the oven for 20 – 30 minutes until charred. If preferred, place the peppers on an open flame until charred.

Place in a plastic bag – this will allow the peppers to sweat, making it easier to remove the skin. Make sure that all of the skin and the seeds are removed and season with salt and pepper.

Marinade   

Char the chillies on an open flame, then remove the outer skin and deseed. Mince finely and add the sliced garlic, thyme, pepper, vinegar and olive oil. Adjust the seasoning and then pour the mixture over the peppers to marinade. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve.
