Piperade (Gascon) or Piperrada (Basque), from piper (pepper in Gascon, vs "biper" in Basque) is a typical Basque dish prepared with onion, green peppers, and tomatoes sautéd and flavoured with red Espelette pepper. The colours coincidentally reflect the colours of the spectrum like Basque flag (red, green and white). It may be served as a main course or as a side dish. Typical additions include egg, garlic or meats such as ham. This is a traditional French dish and is served in restaurants and cafés throughout France.
