Ingredients
  • 3 red capsicums, halved, deseeded, roughly chopped
  • 70g breadcrumbs
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 4 tablespoons (80ml) extra virgin olive oil, plus extra to drizzle over
  • 2 tablespoons (5g) mint, finely chopped

How to Make It
Step 1

Preheat the oven to 200°C conventional oven/ 180°C fan-forced (400° Fahrenheit/Gas 6). Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper.

Step 2

Heat a small frying pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and breadcrumbs and cook, continuously stirring for 2 minutes or until the breadcrumbs are toasted and lightly golden. Remove from the heat and transfer breadcrumbs to a small bowl. Stir in the mint and half of the olive oil. Add sea salt to taste and toss well to combine, then set aside.

Step 3

Arrange the capsicum (peppers) over base of baking dish, overlapping slightly and drizzle over the remaining olive oil. Season with sea salt and toss with your hands to combine. Bake for 30 minutes or until capsicum pieces are tender and lightly browned, then remove from the oven.

Step 4

Sprinkle the breadcrumbs in an even layer over the capsicum (peppers). Drizzle with extra olive oil and bake for a further 5 minutes. Serve immediately – buon appetito.
