Piperade, a simple sauteed dish from the Basque region of France can be served as a side dish, main or as a condiment. A pinnacle of versatility.
Piperade is typically prepared with onion, sweet peppers, and tomatoes sautéed in olive oil along with other optional ingredients such as egg, garlic or meats like ham or bacon. To make piperade, begin by cooking chopped onion and garlic together for 5 minutes in oil then add chopped capsicums and tomatoes and cook for a further 5 minutes. In a bowl beat eggs then pour these over the cooked vegetables and mix them in until they are lightly scrambled. Season to taste and garnished with parsley, serve over fish, omelettes, basic frittatas or even chicken.
