Sweet Pepper Starter

Having been vegetarian for 25 years I welcomed this recipe that a friend brought back from Greece. He served it when we ate with them. My wife now uses it regularly when we have friends for dinner.

I posted it elsewhere on the net, in answer to a question, and have decided that it’s worth sharing here.  Who knows; perhaps in time for next weekend’s festivities.

Sweet Pepper Starter.
Serves 2 people
2 Sweet Red Peppers
1 Mango
1 Avocado
4 good sprigs of basil
2 cloves garlic
half a lemon
2 tablespoons of Hummus
50 grams of blue stilton or Docelatte cheese
chop stalk ends off peppers and slice down the middle
place on baking tray and sprinkle with crushed garlic and torn basil leaves
drizzle with garlic or plain olive oil
put in pre-heated oven approx 180 c for 15 minutes or until peppers are soft
leave to cool
when cold arrange 2 halves on each plate
slice avocado and sprinkle with lemon juice
slice mango
dice cheese
arrange 2 avocado slices beside peppers and top with hummus
arrange 2 mango slices beside the other ingredients
sprinkle with small cubes of cheese and serve with ciabatta bread
garnish with a little lettuce

It looks good on the plate, too, which adds to the enjoyment.

And, two thing I can do without at this time of the year, religion and meat.
