marinated roasted red pepper recipe

Every Sunday I design a weekly menu. This way, I can hit the grocery store once and cook several meals throughout the week. Like usual, things don't always go as planned so I'm often left with unused vegetables. I still haven't found a good use for wilted lettuce but old red peppers can easily be transformed into marinated roasted red peppers.

  • 2 red peppers
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • Extra virgin olive oil, splash
  • Balsamic vinegar, splash
  • Fresh herb of your choice: basil, rosemary, thyme etc.
Char peppers on the barbecue. When they are black on all sides, place in a bowl covered with plastic wrap. After 20 minutes, peel the skin off the peppers and thickly slice. Next saute the roasted red peppers on low-medium heat with the remaining ingredients. Enjoy as an appetizer with baguette and buffala mozzarella or serve as a garnish on grilled steak and potatoes. Or just eat.

P.S. Wondering what's on the dinner menu this week? We've got:
  • Monday - Panko-crusted turkey scallopini with tomato sauce on brown rice pasta
  • Tuesday - Greek salad with grilled chicken breasts
  • Wednesday - Soy Vay marinated top sirloin, roasted cauliflower and tossed green salad
  • Thursday - dinner out
  • Friday & Saturday - Rosh Hashanah with our families

Wish me luck! I hope to stay on schedule!

  1. Great idea about having a weekly menu plan! Takes all the pressure and stress out of having to decide at the last minute what to cook for dinner that night - and helps contain the amount of money spent on groceries!

    Love you blog, with all the fabulous recipes and ideas!
