Cooks&Co Roasted Red Peppers have become the brand’s most popular line of the last 12 months. To celebrate the success of these mouth-watering morsels, here are four top tips to help you get even more enjoyment from this No.1 favourite:
Wrap roasted red peppers around pieces of mozzarella, secure with a cocktail stick, then place on a baking tray and cook under a hot grill until the cheese melts.
Purée a jar of drained peppers, mix with cream cheese and add a dash of hot chilli sauce for a delicious veggie dip.
Make a simple Peperonata (an Italian pepper stew) by frying onion and peppers in a pan with some olive oil until soft. Add chopped fresh plum tomatoes and leave to cook down on a low heat for 30 minutes. Season and add a pinch of sugar. Serve as an antipasto, stir through pasta or use as a topping for bruschetta or pizza.
Finally, don’t throw away the oil from your pepper jar - it’s full of flavour. Use it as a marinade, fry onions in it for a casserole, whisk into dressings or drizzle over cooked vegetables or meat for added flavour.
