Rolled Peppers with Cheese ~ Poivrons roulés au fromage
(pwa vhron roulay o froh majh)
Instead of roasting this colorful combination of bell peppers, which can take a while and leave your kitchen smelling like smoke, I suggest you drop them in boiling water for about 10 minutes, then peel them. This is so much easier!
Please marinate the peppers in the best olive oil you have.
- 2 red bell peppers
- 2 yellow bell peppers
- 2 green bell peppers
- Fresh mozzarella balls, thinly sliced
- Olive oil
- Fresh basil to garnish
- Fleur de sel, pepper
- Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil.
- Cut the bell peppers in half lengthwise. Remove the seeds and ribs.
- Put the peppers into the boiling water and boil for 10 to 12 minutes.
- Remove from the water and drain the peppers. When these are cool to the touch, the skins should be easily removed as you rub your fingers over the skin.
- Cut each pepper into 4-8 strips of about one inch, but this depends on the pepper. Sometimes the red peppers are large and long; usually the green and yellow are a bit smaller and more rounded.
- Place strips in a shallow plate and liberally drizzle olive oil over the bell pepper strips and marinate for 30 minutes.
- Cut the fresh mozzarella balls in thin rounds.
- Depending on the size of the pepper strip, place a round or half a round on a strip and roll it up. Skewer with a toothpick so that they remain closed.
- Place the pepper roll on a plate. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add some chopped fresh basil and serve.
