FRENCH: Pipérade

I repeatedly fail at making omelets, so this recipe from Cooking Light has boosted my confidence in making egg dishes. This is a famous egg dish from the Basque region of France.

1 tsp olive oil
¾ cup chopped red bell pepper
¾ cup chopped green bell pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
½ tsp dried thyme
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp cayenne
1 large tomato, diced
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 TBSP fresh parsley

1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
2. Add the peppers and garlic. Sauté for five minutes.
3. Add the thyme, salt, cayenne, and tomato. Cover and reduce the heat to medium. Cook for seven minutes or until the bell peppers are tender. Uncover and cook one more minute until the liquid is almost evaporated.
4. Gently stir in the eggs. Cover and cook for three minutes or until set.
5. Cut into wedges and garnish with fresh parsley.
