Neapolitan-Style Peppers

Wednesday, February 17, 2016

Ingredients
3 sweet bell peppers, (green or a mix of green, yellow, red or orange)
1 medium yellow onion, sliced
6 oz Kalamata olives pitted
3 Tbsp capers
5 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1⁄2 cup pureed tomato sauce
Salt to taste

Directions
Wash the peppers and cut them in halves, removing the top part and all the seeds.  Cut them into 1⁄2" strips then into 1 inch pieces.  Pour the oil into a large frying pan, add the onion and cook until tender.  Add the peppers, olives, capers, tomato sauce and salt.  Stir well and cook until the peppers are done but still firm.  To accelerate the cooking process, cover the pan with a lid.

Leek Toasts with Blue Cheese

Wednesday, February 17, 2016

Courtesy of Smitten Kitchen

Ingredients
1 1/2 pounds leeks, sliced (about 3 generous cups)
2 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 Tbsp olive oil, plus extra for brushing toasts
Coarse salt
Freshly ground black pepper
6 medium-sized or 12 baguette-sized 1/2 inch slices of bread
2 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
Lemon juice (optional)

Directions
Fill a large bowl with cold water.  Add leeks and use your hands to pump them up and down in the water a bit, separating the rings and letting the dirt and grit fall to the bottom.  Transfer to a dish or plate for a minute; no need to dry them.

Meanwhile, heat a large, heavy skillet over medium.  Once hot, add butter and olive oil and once they're fully melted and a bit sizzly, add the leek slices, still wet.  Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt and a few grinds of black pepper. Reduce heat to low, cover with a lid and cook leeks for 25 minutes, stirring them occasionally.  Adjust seasoning to taste.

While leeks cook, brush bread slices with olive oil and sprinkle with coarse salt.  Run under broiler until lightly toasted. You may either spread the cheese you're using on now, while the toasts are hot, or sprinkle it on at the end.  Divide leeks among toasts.  Sprinkle with remaining cheese, if any.  Add a few drops of lemon juice, if desired.  Eat at once or gently rewarm a bit later. Read More...
