A great way to bring out the best flavour in red pepper, onion and zucchini is to roast them. These vegetables make a delicious dip blended with cream cheese and is perfect served on crackers. If you haven’t started planning your new years eve menu, this is a tasty menu option that’s sure to please you and yours!
2 large sweet red peppers
1 large zucchini
1 medium onion
1 tbsp olive oil (for this recipe I’ve also used a lemon flavoured olive oil)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tbsp freshly ground pepper
1 cup (8 oz.) plain cream cheese
Cut red peppers, zucchini and onion into 1 inch pieces. Place in a baking pan coated with cooking oil.
Combine the olive oil, salt and pepper. Drizzle over vegetables and toss to coat.
Bake uncovered, at 425°F for 25 – 30 minutes, or until tender, stirring occasionally. Cool at room temperature.
Place cream cheese and vegetables in a food processor. Cover and process until blended to desired consistency. Chill until it’s time to serve. Serve with an assortment of crackers.
Cheers to 2016, good food and good health!
Made with love,
