RED PEPPER SPREAD

Roasted pepper delicacy, it is usually prepared in the fall to be consumed during the winter (in some countries), as an appetizer, snack or even as a side dish for any meat. There are so many recipes to choose from, but I have developed my own that my family loves the most. The ingredients are red peppers, onions, garlic, tomatoes and some spices, all saute and simmer for less then an hour. I serve it on crackers or toast, tartines. I also like to add it to soups or stews for more flavor and color.

  2. zhara loves red peppers and i love that you don't have to roast them first! i find it tedious to peel them! do you think this freezes well? i like to make bigger batches so i can always have it on hand. my mom taught me to make the same mix, plus a lot of parsley, to add to dishes during cooking, but it was raw, simply put through the grinder, made into a paste, frozen, and then i would shave slices off it whenever i needed it. i like this better cause it has more uses. i can already see it mixed in tomorrow's omelet. yum.

  5. Latsia, thanks for stopping by and comment; I use a combination of different spices that I developed in time trying to bring this spread to a better perfect taste that I know my family will like, such as black pepper, red crushed pepper flakes, bay leafs, thyme, paprica...and olive oil.

  6. Dana, cum am scris, sint retete si retete si moduri de preparare diferite; eu am tot lucrat la o reteta pina am ajuns la finalizarea ei exact asa cum stiu ca place familiei; as putea sa spun ca aduce mai mult a zacusca fara vinete.
    merci de vizita si voi veni si eu pe la tine imediat...pup
