This is so simple, but so delicious. Roast a red pepper and a few cloves of garlic in the oven at 365 degrees. Peel and discard any skin. Mash together. Spread on toast slathered with good olive oil. Top with shavings of Romano or parmesan and salted capers. Open a nice bottle of wine.

    Great take on bruschetta! I just baked a black sesame sourdough and imagine this spread would be awesome to go with it!

    This reminds me of a garlic rubbed bread topped with roasted red pepper, red onion and spinach with (or sometimes without) melted buffalo mozzarella that I used to order regularly at Paul Rankin’s bistro when I worked in Belfast many years ago, so good!! Great recipe that brings back good memories.

  5. Nice. I was cooking with red peppers yesterday. Something very summery about them.

  6. Grand idea.

  7. Great idea…roasted peppers even appeal to the kiddoes around here.
    Now, if the pepper plants would just do a little producing for us, we’d be all set πŸ˜‰

    Love roasted red peppers during the summer. I like to do mine on the BBQ grill so I don’t heat up the kitchen.

  9. This is what I shall have for my evening meal tonight after I return from my photo shoot…easy, quick and fresh. Thanks.

    Okay, so you know how I feel about bread, but I love roasted peppers and this is making me bypass the bread all together and try it anyway
