I love something punchy and full of flavour on top of a crunchy piece of toasted bread and find it an easy prepare ahead canapé to serve before lunch or supper. This time I have used peppers which cook down to silky soft sweetness with very little attention. The capers add a little salty bite and the parsley brings a verdant freshness. They are delicious. —Anna May

In This Recipe
Heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the peppers for 20 or so minutes until soft (you could do this in the oven) then add the garlic, cook for a minute and them remove from the heat.
Stir through the capers, check for seasoning and then pile onto the toast. Sprinkle with parsley and a little extra oil if desired.
