Ok, let´s do this, the following is a very simple, however, impressive recipe you must learn. Remember how I told you that I learnt to use the oven while I was in New Zealand? Well, this recipe follows the same principle: trust your oven, buttered your trays, and don´t be shy to cut through whatever you are grilling.
- 4 large red capsicums (peppers), as shown in the picture
- 250 grs of goat cheese (diced or crumbled) – Chilchota Brand.
- 1/3 of a red onion, diced
- 6 eggs, scrambled
- A bunch of basil leaves
- 100 grs of Spanish ham or prosciutto
- 2 spoons of extra virgin olive oil
- A Pinch of salt and Pepper
Let´s be clear with this recipe, you must read this instructions and look at the pictures. First, in a bowl mix the eggs, goat cheese, red onion, basil leaves, Spanish ham, salt and pepper. Whisk the ingredients and put aside.
Right after that, grab the capsicums and carve a wee window on one side, make sure that when you do this the capsicum can stay on the surface totally balanced. You´d be making a capsicum chest, so to speak, take the seeds out carefully, now let´s go with the fun part.
Fill every capsicum with the ingredients previously mixed, now put them in a tray and cover them with tin-foil. Place them in the oven and let cook them for 50 minutes (or until the inside of the peppers looks cook, pretty much like a quiche) at 160C°. Plate the peppers with some chickpeas, tomatoes and more crumbled goat cheese salad.
Why are we using the Chilchota brand for this recipe? Simple, it is a fresh, good quality, nice texture, amazing flavour, goat cheese, one of the best available in the market. You could find this product at any supermarket in Mexico City. If you can´t, well, simple, settle for regular goat cheese, your choice. (Want to know more? Follow them on twitter: @ChilchotaMx)
Ps. I forgot to tell you, we are also using free range eggs from Valle Organico; mate, honestly, is there another way?
