Fried Green Pepper with Tomato Sauce
(Domates Soslu Biber Kızartması)
4 Cubanelle Peppers or long green peppers
1/2 cup sunflower oil
2 large tomatoes, peeled, diced
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
50 ml extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp crushed pepper
Place sunflower oil in a medium sized skillet. When the oil heats up, fry the peppers on both sides until golden brown. While you're frying the pepper, cover it with a paper towel since the oil will spit. Afterwards, place on a paper towel and wait until they cool down. Then peel off the thin layer of skin with your hands. Meanwhile, remove the seeds from the pepper.
Combine all the tomato sauce ingredients in a small pot. Cook on medium heat for 10 minutes. Make sure it doesn't dry out.
Put the peppers on a serving dish. Pour the tomato sauce over it and refrigerate. Serve the dish at room temperature or chilled as an appetizer. Try serving this dish with bread.
