Piperade: Basically a pepper stew with onions, garlic, tomato, spicy paprika or smoked paprika if you like. the eggplant caviar recipe can be modified and used as a piperade recipe by eliminating the eggplant and adding 1 more cup of sweet peppers.

Sweet pepper purees: Slow cooking the peppers- 1 color per puree, a little white wine, ollive oil, thyme, salt, shallot or onion, a little garlic until all are quite soft- puree in blender, strain. You can add a little butter to enrich the sauce, or stir together with mayo or yogurt for a creamy result.
