- 6 T. TOOC Fresh Basil Olive Oil
- 1 medium Yellow Onion cut into 1/4-inch slices
- 1 medium carrot, peeled and halved lengthwise and cut into 1/4-inch thick slices
- Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
- Hot Pepper flakes to taste (optional)
- 5 cloves garlic, chopped
- 4 pounds ripe, fragrant heirloom tomatoes, cored and cut into 1/2-inch wedges
- 1/4 C chopped parsley
Heat large Dutch oven or heavy bottomed saucepan over medium heat.
Add 3 tablespoons of the olive oil, the onion, and carrot and season with a pinch of salt and red pepper flakes. Cover and gently cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes.
Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute, then add the tomatoes and stir to combine. Cover again and cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes are very juicy, 10-15 minutes. Uncover and continue to cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally for 30 minutes.
Add the parsley and cook 5 minutes more. Stir in remaining Olive Oil. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper if necessary. If it's too acidic, add a pinch of sugar. If it's too sweet a drop of red wine vinegar.

The different colored peppers add flare to the table when presented.
- 4 large bell peppers, assorted colors
- 2 cups dry rice
- 1 cup carrots
- 1 cup celery
- 4 tomatoes
- 2 mild onions
- 4 T Bar-b-que Spice Rub
- 2 t Salish Sea Salt
- Roasted Garlic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Shredded cheddar or cheese of your choice
- Lemon Citrus Olives (Optional)
Cook rice as you normally would, adding Bar-b-que Spice Rub and Salish Salt to the water before cooking. While the rice is cooking coarsely chop the carrots, celery, tomatoes, and onions, putting them in a large mixing bowl when done. Wash, slice, and hollow bell peppers lengthwise so that you have eight boats (At this point you can take the bell peppers and place them cut side up on a preheated grill to give them char lines for presentation.) When rice is fully cooked add to mixing bowl of veggies. Drizzle with Garlic EVOO to taste. (While the exact amount of oil that you use is up to you, you want enough moisture so that the rice mixture is very sticking.) Mix well and generously spoon into bell pepper boats, placing boats in large, ungreased Pyrex pan. At this point the dish can be covered and refrigerated for up to 48 hours. Place uncovered in a preheated 450 degree oven for about 30-45 minutes. The exact cooking time will depend on the core temperature of the dish, if it is coming from the refrigerator it will take the whole 45 minutes, or more, to fully reheat. The bell peppers should be firm, but soft to the touch when they are done cooking. Once they are fully cooked, pull out of the oven, and sprinkle with the cheese, and place a single olive in the middle of the pepper (optional). Place back in the oven for 2-3 minutes to melt the cheese. Serve and enjoy!Learn More
