Roasted Pepper Dip

Instead of roasting your own peppers, you can use a 12-ounce jar of roasted red bell peppers, drained well.

  • Yield: 2 cups (serving size: 1 tablespoon)


  • 3 large red bell peppers
  • 8 sun-dried tomatoes (packed without oil)
  • 3/4 cup boiling water
  • 4 ounces light cream cheese, cubed and softened
  • 1/2 cup light sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced


1. Cut bell peppers in half lengthwise; discard seeds and membranes. Place peppers, skin sides up, on a baking sheet; flatten with hand. Broil peppers 5 1/2 inches from heat 15 minutes or until blackened. Place peppers in a zip-top plastic bag, and seal; let stand 15 minutes. Peel and coarsely chop peppers; discard skins.

2. Combine tomatoes and boiling water in a small bowl; let stand 5 minutes. Drain.

3. Combine chopped peppers, tomatoes, cream cheese, and remaining 6 ingredients in a food processor. Process until smooth. Transfer mixture to a bowl. Serve with raw vegetables (vegetables not included in analysis).
