Caramelised Balsamic Capsicum and Onion-Everyday Wits

Serves 4


Caramelised Balsamic Capsicum and Onion is an ideal accompaniment to the table when your having a pick lunch, it brings me back to when we visited Kev’s Oma and Opa.

They would have a large spread out on the table with all sorts of fermented veggies, cheeses, smoked meats, Rye bread and chutneys.

It was such a wonderful time, sitting and taking and picking at the food. I hope you can enjoy some family times like these around the dining table, with good food.


  • 2 Large capsicum, preferably red, diced chunky.
  • 2 onions, sliced thick.
  • Salt and pepper.
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil or ghee.
  • 2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar.


Place your oil into a saucepan and heat on medium heat, add in the capsicum and onion and stir gently for around 10-15 mins until the veggies have caramelised but retained some of their crunchiness.
Add the balsamic vinegar and season with salt and pepper, then reduce down until it has thickened up.
Place your mixture into a bowl and serve.
