Cooking lecho in a slow cooker:

Step 1: Prepare the pepper.

Wash the pepper, it is better not just with your hands, but using a soft sponge for dishes. Then remove the seed core by making incisions around the tail.
Next, the pepper needs to be cut. In this case, how exactly you cut it, does not play a role. I prefer that the pepper in the lecho was cut into large rings, it looks more beautiful and appetizing.

Step 2: Prepare the onion.

I also chop the onion large, of course, peeling and washing it before that.

Step 3: Prepare the tomatoes.

Remove the stem from the tomato and put them on a deep dish, boil water and scald vegetables, let them lie in hot water 2-3 minutes. After that, the skin should be easy to peel off.
Grind the peeled tomatoes with a blender to a liquid slurry.

Step 4: Cook the lecho in a slow cooker.

Put chopped peppers and onions on the bottom of the multicooker, pour the tomatoes chopped in a blender, so that the liquid completely hides the pieces of vegetables. Add vegetable oil, sugar, salt, vinegar, black and allspice. Close the lid of the double boiler, set the mode "Extinguishing" and set the timer on 45 minutes.
So simple, now you can go and do other things, as soon as the time necessary for cooking passes, you can serve it or preserve it, pouring it into previously sterilized banks. A lecho cooked in a multicooker does not require any additional processing.

Step 5: Serve lecho.

Ready lecho is great as an addition to hot dishes, for example, goes well with boiled rice or potatoes, pasta, meat. You can even add it to the soup as a dressing or just put it on the holiday table.
Enjoy your meal!

Recipe Tips:

- In some recipes carrots are added to the lecho, try it, maybe you will like this combination.

- If you do not have the opportunity to use a blender, chop the tomatoes in a meat grinder.

- To cook hot lecho, add fresh or narrowed red hot peppers.

- A pair of garlic cloves will also give piquancy to the lecho.
