minutes, or until the pepper is soft. When it is cool, peel it and

mustard with the egg yolks and mix well, Add the yolks to the bread
with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Mix until an emulsion is formed. Combine
the olive oil and peanut oil. Drop by drop, add ail the oil to the
emulsion, whisking constantly. Do not add the oil too quickly and be
sure that the emulsion is homogeneous before adding more oil. Season
with lemon juice, ground pepper, parsley, and tomato paste. Then add
the mashed pepper.
Season with cayenne, lemon juice, salt and pepper as needed.
