Slow roast peppers filled with Boilie goat’s cheese

Category: ,

This is a very simple dish that eats well hot from the oven, at room temperature or chilled. It is a very versatile dish to have in your repertoire as it works well as a starter especially for a vegetarian dinner, or as a light lunch as served hear with a little salad and shaved parmesan, but it is also a perfect picnic basket ingredient, served with crusty bread, salad and a nice chilled sauvignon blanc.
The sweet flavour of the pepper are further enhanced by the long slow cooking, this along with the garlic, basil and Goat’s cheese help to intensify the flavour of the pepper.
Any goat’s cheese can be used in this recipe, but do try to find Boilie as the subtle fresh flavours of this goat’s cheese work perfectly with the sweet peppers

8 cloves garlic peeled and thinly sliced
4 large basil leaves
2 plum tomatoes, peeled and cut into quarters
300g Boilie goat’s cheese
100g parmesan, grated
 Maldon salt and fresh black pepper to season
Olive oil
