A Little Aside: Roasted Romano Peppers

Perfect as alternatives or additions to the salad accompanying your summer BBQ or roasted meats and fish, these gloriously sweet peppers are simply embellished with a few cherry tomatoes, some herbs, a drizzle and a dash to create a lovely, easy bit on the side!!!

Serves 4

What you need…

1 x baking tray

6 romano peppers, halved lengthways and deseeded

24-ish cherry tomatoes, halved

2 garlic cloves, chopped

1 tablespoon capers

A dash of red wine vinegar

Sea salt and black pepper

A good drizzle of olive oil

12 thyme sprigs

What to do…

Preheat your oven to 200˚c / 400˚f / gas 6.

Place the peppers onto your baking tray. (I line my tray with foil which is discarded after cooking, leaving a clean baking tray – saves on the washing up!) You may need to balance the peppers against one another to keep them upright.

Into each of the peppers, wodge in as many cherry tomato halves as you fancy. Sprinkle over with garlic and capers and then around ½ teaspoon red wine vinegar per pepper. Season with salt and pepper and then drizzle with olive oil. Share the thyme evenly between the peppers and then pop your oven for about 30 minutes or until just starting to char at the edges.

Serve these effortless, tasty little morsels and marvel at the simplicity of something so tasty!

How easy…

Literally a few minutes to prep before the oven takes over – couldn’t be easier!

1st Proper BBQ of the Season!

So, we had one last week on the beach – lovely idea but…burgers with sand, sausages with sand, halloumi with sand…work in progress. Anyway, today was the first PROPER one and we went all out: halloumi, garlic bread with mozzarella, lobster tails with garlic butter, salmon with rosemary and garlic, chicken with my favourite marinade, sausages, burgers in brioche buns and posh roasted vegetables (not quite ready for salad!) Bloody marvellous!!! The sun shone, the wine flowed and the afternoon simply chillaxed by….happy days! (All recipes listed above previously blogged). xxx
