How To Make Savoury Red Pepper and Olive Roll Over Bread - Easy Recipe
This bread will create great interest around the table as it looks so unusual. Although this recipe is for red peppers (plus olives), there's no reason why you shouldn't use all three - red, yellow and green to make a truly colourful creation!
Plus, it's a recipe you can explore yourself - try garlic, onions, aubergines and other fresh suitable vegetables in addition to peppers!
We had some friends round for a very informal meal, with wines and beers, and the bread went down a treat. It's probably best eaten with olives, tapas, cheese and other savoury sauce dishes but please feel free to experiment.
For example, in the video at the end of the article there's a red pepper and bacon recipe! Interesting.
- 200g/2 cups white flour
- 250g/2.25 cups granary flour
- 2 Medium/Large Red peppers
- 2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 4 teaspoons Balsamic Vinegar
- 1-2 tablespoons Sun Dried Tomatoe Paste
- 6 large Green Olives
- Half teaspoon Salt and Pepper
- 1 teaspoon Chopped Herbs
- 1.25 teaspoons Dried yeast
- 250ml/1 cup Warm water
- 1 teaspoon Castor sugar
- Half a cup Chopped mushrooms
- Put flour,sugar, salt, yeast and herbs if wanted into large bowl. Add oil gradually then mix in warm water to form a soft dough.
- Knead dough on floured surface until non sticky. Place back in bowl and leave to rise double in size.
- Quarter cleaned peppers and grill skins up until nearly black. Take care not to burn them. Remove and discard skins. De-stone olives, mix with peppers and a little oil.
- Remove dough, knead then cut in two. Roll each piece to an oval shape not too thin, spread with tomatoe paste. Layer half the peppers in centre, roll over to cover.
- Place both on oiled/greased baking tray and put remaining peppers (with mix of olives and mushrooms) on top. Leave to rise again.
- Drizzle with a little oil, sprinkle herbs. Bake in a preheated oven 220C (425F) Gas Mark 7 for 15 minutes. Foil helps overbrowning.
Red peppers are great to eat raw but are also delicious when roasted/grilled and de-skinned. Some benefits include:
- Easy to prepare and relatively cheap for the amount of goodness they give.
- Packed with vitamins and minerals,especially vitamin C.
- Contain iron.
- Add taste and texture to a meal.
- Attractive colour.
Peppers are relatively easy to grow in pots or outside in decent soil.
