1 1/2 cups (serving size: 1 tablespoon)

Roasted red peppers give this spread smoky sweetness. You can substitute 1 1/2 cups bottled roasted red bell peppers. Serve with toasted bagel chips or raw vegetables. You can also top crostini with this spread and a slice of fresh mozzarella.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler.

Step 2

Cut bell peppers in half lengthwise; discard seeds and membranes. Place pepper halves, skin sides up, on a foil-lined baking sheet; flatten with hand. Broil 10 minutes or until blackened. Place in a zip-top plastic bag; seal. Let stand 5 minutes. Peel and chop. Place bell peppers and remaining ingredients in a food processor, and process until smooth.

I wanted to love this, but I didn't. Neither did anyone who had the opportunity to try it (kids and adults). I love healthy spreads for veggies and crackers or pita chips, but this one just had a flavor that no one gravitated toward. It was ok, but certainly not tempting or terribly tasty. It was too bland and a bit too sweet.

I love this!! Love it! I was completely surprised at the flavor and deliciousness! Super easy if you use bottled roasted red peppers (sunflower has great cheap ones) I was surprised at how great it was with no garlic or red pepper flakes!! I've started ramping up this recipe, i add a jalapeno, garlic, and cayenne pepper, hubby likes it much better that way!
