Cleaned and cut in half, they can be roasted in the oven at 400 degrees for about 45 minutes with a little olive oil, until they are tender.
You'd not know from looking at the back side of them that they hold a richness and beauty under that tough skin.
When cooked, the skins can easily be peeled off to reveal the deep pinks and purples within.
This makes an excellent lunch!
