Recipe Ingredients:

2 large red bell peppers
2 large yellow bell peppers

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
Juice of 1 lemon
1 small clove garlic, thinly sliced
6 branches fresh thyme

Cooking Directions:

  1. Heat oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Arrange peppers on a foil-lined baking sheet and bake until blackened and soft, 25 to 30 minutes, turning once or twice. Transfer to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let stand 10 minutes.

  5. To serve, arrange peppers on 4 plates. Garnish with olives, oranges and remaining thyme. Crumble goat cheese over and add additional ground pepper.
