Piperade (Gascon and thus French) or Piperrada (Basque and thus Spanish), 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.[1] The colours coincidentally reflect the colours of the Basque flag (red, green and white).[1] It may be served as a main course or as a side dish. Typical additions include egg, garlic or meats such as ham.
