Opening a bottle of Champagne to celebrate a friends house sale, it went way up high and then wedged itself into the leaf of our tree, couldn't do that again if we tried.

Jamie Oliver Roasted Stuffed Peppers

You know when you get a glut of veggies from the garden and you wonder what you can do with them all, well this is the day of  red peppers. I had 4 so found a Jamie Oliver Roasted Stuffed Peppers (love his recipes) and I can't begin to tell  you just how good this dish is. So if you have a few peppers around that need using here's how. Yellow or green work just as well. I always find Jamie's recipes so perfectly balanced and also easy to make.

You will need:-

1. 4 peppers
2. sea salt & ground black pepper
3. 1 clove of garlic (finely chopped)
4. 25 cherry tomatoes (I didn't have 25 so I just diced up some bigger ones)
5. 2 fresh chillies red or green (finely chopped) I also removed the seeds.
6. 1-2 TBspoons capers (rinsed & dried)
7. a good handful of stoned black olives chopped
8. fresh basil
9. 1 TBspoon wine vinegar
10. 3TBspoons olive oil
11. 4 slices of rustic bread
12. 4 mozzarellas
13. 2 handfuls of rocket salad

Preheat oven to 200c

Cut the peppers in half lengthwise - remove the seeds but leave the stems. Season with salt and place on a baking tin lined with baking paper,cut side up.

In a bowl mix together the finely chopped garlic, tomatoes, chillies, capers, olives and basil leaves. Season with salt,pepper, oil & vinegar and mix well with your hands. Fill the peppers with the mixture and cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes, remove foil and bake for a further 20 minutes.

Toast bread and then place a pepper on each slice, top with mozzarella and a garnish of rocket and a little drizzle of oil. As you can see I had mine with chips and  it was delicious and highly recommend.
Bon Apetite
