Gernika Peppers and a recipe review

My lovlie colleague friend (she is Spanish, from Basque Country she says!) brought me those Gernika peppers from her holidays to Spain. These peppers are unique to the region of Gernika in Spain. The best way to eat them is just shallow fried and sprinkled with some coarse sea salt. They were indeed very tasty and quite different in taste to any other types of peppers I’ve eaten before! If you happen to get hold of some Gernika peppers, they’re worth trying! I really enjoyed them.

I also adapted this Nasudengaku recipe (Eggplant grilled with Special Miso paste) from the Now Vegan cookbook. This was so good! Well, I changed some of the spices and sauces but kept the idea of cutting and preparing the aubergine in the same way.


So that evening for dinner, we had Gernika peppers, adapted Nasudengaku with couscous, tofu (marinated in soy sauce then fried) and salad! It was a feast!

    Pipo(anonymous), thanks for your comment. The Karma subject is a slightly off-topic here but it is related to cruelty-free living. I personally have different views on karma itself, not that I don&#39;t believe in karma, but I believe it is how you interpret it. <br /><br />Basically, I don&#39;t think you are &#39;punished&#39; for the &#39;wrong&#39; that you do simply because right and wrong
