We served this as a starter in the Travelling Field Kitchen alongside a beetroot dip and hummous with fresh bread and vegetable crudités. The colours are amazing.

    Roast the peppers (whole), tomatoes, onions and garlic with a dash of balsamic vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper in the oven at 200°C until the peppers begin to blister.

    Keeping the peppers whole makes them easier to peel later on.Cover with clingfilm and cool. Skin and de-seed the peppers.
