Fire Roasted Red Pepper Dip



    • 2 red bell peppers
    • 1 chili pepper (Anaheim is a good bet here)
    • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
    • 1 clove garlic
    • 1 to 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
    • 3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt

    For Dipping:

    • Cucumber slices
    • Fresh fennel
    • Yellow peppers
    • Sprouted grain wraps


    1. Roast bell and chili peppers directly over a gas flame or hot coals (or in an oven preheated to 425°F) until blackened.
    2. Immediately place in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Once they’re cool, remove wrap, pull out the core along with the seeds, and peel the peppers.
    3. Put them in a food processor with EVOO, garlic, parsley, feta and salt. Process until smooth. Scrape into a bowl and place bowl in the center of a large platter.
    4. Surround the bowl with sliced vegetables and sprouted grain wraps.
