Pepper Onion spread
What do you do with bunch of red bell peppers ?
I love red bell peppers and I had bunch of them.It is a good problem to have but we were about to leave on long vacation and i was afraid it will wilt and go bad.So I roasted the peppers and froze them.You can freeze them without roasting but my oven was on, so I took advantage of it.One less thing to do later.
When we got back, I remembered those peppers.I turned them into a simple spread.
- It is good as spread for crostini/bruschetta.
- We love this with grilled chicken.
- And when nothing fancy is available to spread on,simple cracker works too 🙂
It keeps well for at least a week in refrigerator.
You can add plum tomatoes to it while cooking, chopped basil in the end if you want to. I kept it simple and let caramelized onion and pepper shine through 🙂
2 roasted red bell peppers,sliced
1 medium-big onion,sliced
1 clove of garlic
Salt and pepper to taste
In a pan, heat 2-3 tablespoon of oil.Add finely chopped red onion.Saute it until little over translucent.
Add sliced bell pepper,season it with salt and pepper.Cook it covered, at low, until onion is caramelized and mixed with pepper.
Enjoy it as spread with your choice of cracker/bread/protein.
