Preparation steps


For the pepper sauce, rinse 1 bell pepper, trim, remove seeds, peel and cut into fine dice. Peel shallots and chop finely.


Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a pan. Sauté shallot until soft. Add diced bell pepper and cook for a few minutes. Remove and set aside 1/3 of the diced bell pepper. Stir paprika, flour and Ajwar into the remaining diced bell pepper and immediately add the broth. Simmer over low heat for another 5 minutes. Add 1/3 cup cream. Puree the sauce and season with salt and pepper. Add the 1/3 diced pepper to the sauce, mix and keep warm.


Rinse zucchini, cut off the ends and set ends aside. Cut zucchini lengthwise into thin slices. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a pan. Fry zucchini slices until golden brown over medium heat, 3-4 minutes, remove from pan and drain on paper towels.


For the stuffing, separate egg (save white for another use). Rinse oregano and shake dry. Pluck and chop leaves from 6 stalks. Grate the Parmesan. Cut stem ends from the zucchini ends into very small pieces. Peel carrots and finely chop. Peel the onions and finely dice.


Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan and cook onions over medium heat until translucent. Add carrot and zucchini cubes and sauté for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Then mix in a bowl with egg yolk, remaining cream, breadcrumbs, Parmesan and oregano. Season with salt and pepper.


Rinse remaining bell pepper, trim, remove seeds and cut into strips. Lay 3 zucchini slices slightly overlapping on a work surface. Spread the filling on top, roll up and arrange on warmed plates. Garnish with bell pepper sauce, bell pepper strips and remaining oregano stems.
