Veggy prawns on old bread

This is an old post from a blog I used to have years ago.

At the time, I grew my own vegetables in the back garden , but then the four cats from my next door neighbour made this impossible and so the posts, the blog and the vegetables were forgotten… until now.

“Yesterday, at lunch time, we were hungry but not quite feeling like going out “hunting-gathering”. This is why I looked in the fridge, then the freezer and finally the garden, to make lunch. The result was rather delicious, or so I thought.

4 small green peppers and 20 cherry tomatoes from the garden
2 garlic cloves from the basket
Some Parmesan cheese and 1/2 an onion from the fridge
8 large frozen prawns and 1/2 an old baguette from the freezer.
some herbs from the back of the cupboard

How to:
First I sliced the garlic finely and fried in a two spoons of olive oil till brown whilst chopping the peppers finely. (If you do this, please make sure you use a low heat to avoid burning.)

I then removed the garlic from the oil, put them aside for later them and fried the peppers in the same oil whilst chopping the onion. When the peppers were soft, I added the onion till brown whilst halving the tomatoes.

With the tomatoes in the pan, I tasted and seasoned. I also added: oregano, thyme and rosemary.

I left the mix cooking for around 8 minutes on a low heat, preheated the oven on a gas mark 6, sliced the bread in thick slices and covered the base of an oven proof dish. As the tomato mix thickened, I added the prawns to it for a minute.

I then poured the mix on the pan to the bread the bread base and topped it up with the garlic and a generous layer of grated Parmesan cheese.

I finished the dish on the oven, gas mark 6 for 20 minutes… until the top became golden.”
