Piperade with prosciutto & roasted capsicums


  • Heat the oil in a large non-stick pan and gently saute the onion and garlic until soft. Turn the heat down and add the capsicum, tomatoes and seasonings. Mix well and cook down a little, stirring now and again. Taste for seasoning.
  • Place the basil, eggs and seasonings in a bowl and beat with a fork. Then pour into the tomato mixture and stir with a wooden spoon, folding soft curds into the centre as they form, being careful not to over cook. Taste for seasoning.
  • At the same time, grill or toast the bread.
  • To serve, place a slice of hot bread on each plate and top with slices of prosciutto. Then mound the eggs on top and garnish with a basil sprig.
