Roasted Red Pepper Dip

I never realized how much dairy we consume until I went to make vegan superbowl dishes … I had the hardest time coming up with dishes particularly cause everything seemed to involve, especially anything hubby would normally want to eat! I was reminded of Red Pepper dip which was delicious and vegan friendly, and the perfect accompaniment for my homemade crackers. I’m going to make this again soon to use in wraps for lunch!

Roasted Red Pepper Dip

How do you Roast a Red Pepper?

Cut the peppers in half and clean out the seeds and innards. Place them on a baking sheet skin side up. Place the sheet in a 450°F-500°F oven set on broil. The skin will start to blacken and soften in 7-10 minutes. Once the skins are brownish-black, remove from the oven and immediately place in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let sit for 20 minutes or so (or until the peppers have time to cool and “sweat”). Once they have cooled you will be able to peel the skins right off.

Roasted Red Pepper Dip

2 medium red peppers, roasted
3 cloves of garlic, roasted*
1-2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
couple drops red wine vinegar
coarse salt & pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in food processor/mini prep/blender until combined.

* I prefer using roasted garlic but you can use fresh garlic if you don’t want to take the time to roast the garlic

    Vegan cooking is tough! Well, I think it is. I recently have been developing some vegan recipes. I found myself making a lot of Southeast Asian food.
