  • 6 mini bell peppers or 2 large bell peppers, seeded and sliced
  • 1/4 red onion sliced thinly
  • 4 garlic cloves skin removed
  • 1 tsp fresh oregano roughly chopped
  • Pinch red pepper flakes
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil for drizzling
  • Few leaves of fresh basil chopped


  • Begin by heating a large non-stick skillet with olive oil and place the garlic cloves in. Allow the garlic to infuse the oil and begin to carmelize. This should take about 5 minutes.
  • Add the peppers, onions, oregano, red pepper and salt and pepper. Place on medium to medium-high heat and allow the vegetables to cook down. Try not to toss the vegetables around, but instead allow them to fry and change in color. This should take about 15 minutes.
  • Every so often, turn the vegetables and then let them fry on the other side.
  • When done, place vegetables in a serving plate and sprinkle with additional salt if necessary adn fresh chopped basil.
