BM # 72
Week 1, Day 1
Theme : Dips, Chutneys and Spreads

Yesterday I posted Black Bean Hummus , today it is Roasted Bell Pepper Spread. With multiple posts we are not able to post all recipes at the same time , so some end up as drafts. This is a spread which is from Middle East. The spread is extremely flavorful and you could use it as spreads or even as dips with some crunchy bites.

I made this as a spread for Bread sticks for the Mega Marathon where I made just sandwiches throughout the month.
Here goes the recipe

Roasted Bell Pepper Spread

2 red bell peppers
1 medium onion, chopped roughly
2 cloves garlic
1 dried red chilly, soaked for a couple of hours
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp vinegar
Salt to taste

Roast the bell peppers in a oven or on gas.
When charred remove from fire .
Remove the charred skin and wipe gently with a kitchen towel
Heat oil, add onions and garlic, toss till onions are transparent.
Remove from fire.
Let cool.
Now put the onions, garlic, peppers,red chilly, salt and vinegar in a blender and make a smooth paste.
Sprinkle some sesame seeds.
Serve as a spread or a dip.
