Wednesday, February 17, 2016

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

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.

2 tbsp canola or other neutral oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 red or yellow bell pepper, stemmed, peeled if desired, seeded, and chopped

2 cups freshly scraped corn kernals
Minced cilantro or fresh parsley leaves for garnish

Place a large, deep skillet or casserole dish over medium heat.  Add the oil and heat for 1 minute; add the onion and pepper.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the bell pepper is fairly tender, about 10 minutes.

Add the tomatoes, okra, and chili powder; turn the heat to low, and stir.  Cover and cook, stirring once or twice, until the okra is tender (about 10 minutes).
