Basque vegetable dish / From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Piperade (Gascon and French) or piperrada (Basque and Spanish), from piper (pepper in Gascon and in Basque), is a typical Basque dish prepared with onion, green peppers, and tomatoes sautéd and flavoured with red Espelette pepper.[1] The colours coincidentally reflect the colours of the Basque flag (red, green and white).[1] It may be served as a main course or as a side dish. Typical additions include egg, garlic or meats such as ham.
