This dish is great for summer meals. Bell peppers are roasted and then twice-cooked with other vegetables to make a sweet and rich treat. Serve with a baguette, and use the bread as your fork, Algerian-style.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Place the whole peppers on aluminum foil. Bake until the skin is spotted black and the peppers are soft, 30 to 45 minutes, turning the peppers once if necessary.

  • Remove peppers from the oven and set aside to cool for 10 minutes. Peel off the skin and remove the stem and seeds. Chop the roasted peppers into half-inch pieces.

  • Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion and cook, stirring frequently, until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, salt, and pepper; stir in the chopped peppers and tomato. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the tomato is soft and the mixture is well incorporated, about 5 minutes.

This recipe was absolutely delicious! I followed the recipe exactly and didn't change a thing and it came out perfect. It was very easy and great flavor. I ate it as a main course with crusty bread as suggested and my husband loved it as well. A keeper! Read More

You have to add some of the spices you want to make it something tasty. This is a great base recipe but it should not be a final. I added seasoning salt and your definitely going to want to add more red onion and garlic. Read More

I thought this was devine except I would use more than 1 tablespoon olive oil I just poured it in by eye and we LOVE the floavor of EVOO so- that would be my only suggestion therwise I followed this to a T and it was a delishious side to our roasted chicken and white wine:) Read More

I made this for me and my boyfriend and I really enjoyed it. He said it was good but a little strange. However he went back for seconds. I didn't measure out the onion (I used about a quarter of a small red onion) and used jarred minced garlic. I wish I used fresh garlic. All in all it is a tasty dish. Read More

MMMM delicious. I added a bit of turmeric and basil and it was great with the buttered fettucine and pork chops. Great stuff! Easy too. Read More

Made this with red bell peppers as hubby does not like the green ones. He said that this was not as flavorful as he thought that it would be but then I did make this in February. I will try again in the summer with better tomatoes and see how he likes it. Thanks for posting the recipe. Read More

I was searching for a bell pepper salad when I came across this recipe. Also I've been tinkering with incorporating more fruit into my hot dishes. With this recipe I added 1/2 C sliced Red Delicious Apple - peeled during the onion sautee step and adjusted some measurements: 1/2 C red onion 3 T red onion and 1 orange - 1 red - 1 yellow green pepper. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE We happened to be having grilled brats with German pickle spears and Horseradish Mustard for dinner. This dish complemented it very nicely though next time I will use crunchy deli chips or toasted Lavash. I grilled tortillas and found them too flimsy and doughy. And finally the Flafla was wonderful ON THE BRATS!! I wonderful year-round alternative for folks that do not care for sauer kraut. P.S. This dish is LOADED with Vitamins C and D! Read More
