Serves 8

In this salad, which also goes by the name of "chouka", the peppers
have a different flavor from when they are grilled.

4 red bell peppers
3-4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 1/2 lbs (750 g) tomatoes, peeled and cut into pieces
Salt and pepper
1-2 teaspoons sugar
1 lemon, cut in 6 wedges

Cut the peppers in half lengthwise and remove the stems and seeds, them
cut them into 3/4-inch (2-cm) pieces. Fry them in the oil on very low
heat, turning them over until they are soft. Add the garlic and cook till
the peppers are slightly browned. Then add the tomatoes, salt, pepper, and
sugar and simmer, uncovered, for about 25 minutes, until the tomatoes are
reduced to a thick, jammy consistency. Serve on slices of bread
accompanied by lemon wedges.

VARIATION:

One teaspoon of caraway seed could be added, and a good pinch of hot
red pepper.
