Piedmont peppers

These lush-tasting peppers are bursting with antioxidants to help fight any baddies that find their way into your body. They taste like heaven, sweet and garlicky with a tang of tomato. Serve with some good sourdough bread spread with goat's cheese.
Serves: 2 • Prep: 5-10 mins • Cook: 50 mins • Easy 
  • 4 large red peppers
  • 3-4 med tomatoes, nice and ripe
  • anchovies
  • garlic
  • olive oil
  • black pepper (salt if not using anchovies)
Cut the peppers in half and take out the seeds; leave the stalks on for looks and to help the peppers stay in shape. Place the peppers in a shallow roasting tin, cut side up.

Skin the tomatoes by putting them in a bowl of boiling water then take the skin off after about a minute. Cut them into quarters and put 3-4 quarters in each pepper.

Peel a few garlic cloves and slice them very thinly. Put the slices on top of the tomatoes along with 1-2 anchovies.

Drizzle each pepper with olive oil and grind some black pepper over.

Roast at 180C or gas mark 4 for about 40-50 minutes.

Serve with all the juices poured over. Breathe garlic over all your friends, mmm mmmmm, so worth it!

The ones in the piccy were cooked by Sally’s friend, Mr Williams and washed down with some lovely red wine (antioxidants don’t ya know).
Nutrition info
Peppers have a wide diversity of nutrients and are generally quite overlooked in favour of more trendy veg such as avocados and kale.

They have excellent amounts of vitamin C for healthy skin and immunity and vitamin A for eye health and anti-inflammation; as well as vitamin B6 for brain and nerve health and efficient metabolism.

One pepper has more vitamin C than an orange!

They also contain a number of other B vitamins, including B1, B2, vitamin B3, folate, and pantothenic acid, as well as vitamin E (fights free radical damage that can harm cells), K, potassium, manganese, phosphorus, molybdenum, and fibre. An extraordinary range of goodness.
