Welcome to Mum&sons

My two eldest boys challenged me to start a cooking blog with simple recipes that we can cook together - and my youngest one has now joined in. I am hoping they pick up some cooking and photograph skills... or that at least they learn to design and run a blog.


You need:
- 1 glass of olive oil
- 4 peppers cut into matchsticks
- salt

Put the oil into a small deep pan. Heat the oil (under high heat) until it is about to produce smoke. Add the peppers. Reduce the heat to medium and fry the peppers for 3-4- minutes (or until the edges start getting black) As you take them out put them on a piece of kitchen paper to get rid of any excess oil. Sprinkle with salt.

Keep the oil as it adds great flavour to eggs or tortilla.

The fact that the colours of the peppers are the colours of the winners of the European Championship is pure coincidence.
