I had to buy a 5 pound can of roasted red peppers as that is all the store had. What can I do with it please? The recipe I have needs a few pieces. Any ideas? I live in the Caribbean and have no stove.
re: coney with everything
Roasted red pepper dip.
Roasted red pepper hummous.
Layer roasted red peppers with cheese, greens and meat in a sandwich. It's very attractive in those loaf sandwiches.
Roasted red pepper soup.
Gazpacho. (I used them in gazpacho this week, as I can't have raw peppers. It was WONDERFUL)
Sauce. (I see there's an interesting and simple looking one at the FoodNetwork site)
Let your imagination go wild!
I like to top leftover roasted red peppers with sliced feta cheese, olive oil, oregano, and black pepper, then bake or broil until feta is bubbling...squeeze lemon juice over the top when done, and serve with green salad and bread or bruschetta. for a simple supper.
One of my Aunts taught me this simple, killer appetizer/anti-pasta thing to make. Take the red peppers and cut them into thin, long strips. Mince fresh, raw garlic and throw into glass container along with peppers. Pour olive oil on top- stick in fridge for a few hours. That's it! Serve room temp. It's outrageously good with thin sliced italian bread (mop up the olive oil with the bread) - goes great with hard salami, hard cheeses, this is really good as a sandwich topping. Keeps for about a week. The secret is the minced raw garlic.
