This recipe needed more seasoning. DH told me it was a bit bland. Next time I'll use chicken stock to do it. It will add more taste. Thanks BurtonFanatic :) Made for Cookbook tag game
i scaled this back for 3 serves and still had a serve left over, I used a mix of red and yellow capsicum/bell peppers as the DM will not eat green (any other colour she is fine with) and a sweet pink eschalot for the onion and as I have a surplus of baby grape tomatoes I quartered those and used and it made a delicious side to recipe #468838.
