This side dish is nice and easy to make, and it tastes just as good as it looks. I called it Mediterranean spicy Rice with Sweet Pepper sauce because that is exactly what it is…. Look at the colour of it – vibrant like a tangerine! Sweet as in sweet pepper, but also spicy, as I added chillies to it as well as harissa which I like very much. Of course, you can adjust the chilli to suit your taste buds.
I remember making this dish many times as a side dish to go with a main course. I also often serve it with a BBQ. You can have this dish cold or hot – either way it is delicious. I grow lots of peppers in my garden and I find this is a really good way to use up my crops. I also roast some of the peppers then I purée them for a sauce.
