Roasted Peppers with a flavorful parsley-based sauce, anchovies, almonds and breadcrumbs, the classic ' green sauce '. A light appetizer, but effective, or a colorful side dish to accompany both the fish's flesh. I love peppers, whose sweet flavor in this recipe is enhanced and enriched by the crunch of almonds and toasted bread crumbs. If you are vegetarian or vegan, leave out the anchovies in oil in the sauce and replace them with capers, they bring the same saline component. The trick to getting roasted peppers into perfect oven is cooking them whole everyone on the oven rack and then, as soon as the skin has begun to shrivel, close them still hot in freezer bags. The steam that forms will ensure that the skin of the peppers is raised and come off naturally and effortlessly. The peppers and aubergines for me are the vegetables of summer queens and those arrostisti soni my favorite, I am very sweet. I hope you enjoy them. Have a good day!
