This capsicum is SO good! You will never consider buying marinated capsicum from the deli or in a jar ever again. Your hands may get a bit stained and need a scrub from taking off the skin but it is well worth the effort. I hope you love this capsicum as much as I do. You can use the capsicum on a cheese platter or antipasto platter. It tastes fantastic on sandwiches, pizzas or however you may like to use it.

A few weeks ago I decided to sign up for a delivered, seasonal vegetable box in a bid to eat less meat and better quality vegetables. The broccoli caught my eye first and foremost, having never been that much of an enthusiast. I realised that this was based solely on my very distant memories of boiled broccoli as a compulsory part of my weekly diet. I came up with what is essentially a warm dressed broccoli salad and it hit the spot quite nicely; fresh and simple with the preserved lemon giving it a warm zesty undertone.
