Ingredients

2 large each: red bell peppers, yellow bell peppers

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

Juice of 1 lemon

1 small clove garlic, thinly sliced

6 branches fresh thyme

Salt, freshly ground pepper to taste

12 black olives

1 large orange, peeled, sliced

2 ounces soft goat cheese

Directions

Heat oven to 375 degrees. 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.

Meanwhile, for marinade, combine oil, vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, leaves from about half the thyme, salt and pepper in a large bowl.

While peppers are still hot, slip off skin and scrape out seeds. Cut each pepper into quarters. Add to marinade and refrigerate 2 to 3 hours.

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