The first time The Monkeys saw yellow capsicum, they raised a skeptical eyebrow or two. Even after my assurance that yes, it was still a capsicum, yellow it may be.
Capsicums are red or green mama…
Yes, but they are also yellow.
Now come on, eat it.
A tentative bite, eyebrows still cocked…
It is capsicum! They happily declared.
(Saying that, they wouldn’t touch this dish, they like their vegetables on the raw side.)
A couple of good slurps of wonderful local olive oil
as much diced seasonal garlic as you fancy
and sliced capsicum
cook it through for a few minutes, and then pop a lid on and wilt it down until it becomes soft. Salt to taste and serve with some crusty bread, and perhaps a little chorizo, (the chorizo alway wins points with The Monkeys and Mr Chocolate.)
