Final Friday Feedstuffs

As we head into the change of seasons, a warming and hearty dish.

Capsicum Cuties

*      6 large red or yellow capsicums (peppers)
*      1 can kidney beans, drained and washed
*      Half can of crushed Italian tomatoes
*      Teaspoon each of the following fresh herbs; parsley, chives, basil
o   OR 1 teaspoon total of dried mixed Italian herbs as an alternative
*      Good pinch of salt and cracked black pepper
*      Goats cheese log cut into 6 rounds
*      Extra virgin olive oil

Pre-heat oven to 400’F/200’C.

Wash the capsicums well and then dry.  Press down on the stalk until it breaks free.  Remove it with the seed ball and tip out all loose seeds.  Reach in and tear away the pith membranes. Run a paring knife very lightly over the skins, just enough to pierce and create strips on the surface. Place these onto the baking dish, slightly apart.

Mix the beans, tomatoes and seasonings together and divide evenly between the capsicums. Top off with the cheese rounds, fitted neatly into the opening.  Use a basting brush to liberally dress the skins and top w with the oil and place in oven for 15-20 minutes.  The skins should blacken slightly.

Serve with steamed rice and spinach or chard.
