Roasted Peppers with Leeks

This recipe calls for sweet bell peppers, but it's also terrific with Gypsy peppers, a slender variety that comes in a range of flavors. "You play the pepper lottery," Sheamus Feeley says. "Some Gypsies are hot, some sweet, and every now and then, one lights you up, it's so fiery."

Ingredients

  • 3 red bell peppers
  • 3 yellow bell peppers
  • 2 medium leeks, white and tender green parts only, sliced crosswise 1/4 inch thick
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt

How to make this recipe

  1. Roast the peppers over gas flames or under a preheated broiler, turning often, until charred all over. Transfer the peppers to a platter and let cool.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a medium saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the leeks and cook until just tender, about 3 minutes. Drain and pat dry with paper towels. Return the leeks to the saucepan with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and toss to coat. Season with salt.
  3. Discard the pepper skins, stems and seeds. Cut the peppers into 2-by- 1/3-inch strips and arrange on a large platter. Drizzle with the remaining 1/4 cup of oil and season with salt. Top with the leeks and serve.
