I love roasted peppers.
I have always bought them in a jar.
Then Trader Joe’s had beautiful red peppers on sale.
For some reason, I assumed roasting peppers would be difficult…
Why did I think that?
I rubbed olive oil on two of the peppers and roasted them at 400 degrees for 30 minutes
Let them cool for thirty minutes
Sliced and peeled the skin off
I will never buy roasted red peppers again!
Roasted Red Pepper Sauce
This would make a great sauce for a sandwich, a salad dressing, but it’s also a great dip for pita! I made it in my food processor, but I’m sure a blender will work fine. If you don’t have Trader Joe’s 21 Seasoning Salute, you can use Italian seasoning blend or your favorite herbs. Whatever you think will taste great with peppers!
Total Time: 10 minutes
- 2 large red bell peppers, roasted and skins removed
- 1 medium tomato, chopped

- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon 21 Seasoning Salute (from Trader Joe’s)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Combine everything in a food processor and run until everything is well mixed. Store in the refrigerator.
