Techniques for delicious Spicy Roasted Red Pepper Sauce
- Char the pepper. Charring the pepper gives it a smoky and savory flavor. Peel off any big chunks of burnt skin, but make sure to leave a little for flavor.
- How spicy do you want it? One teaspoon of red pepper flakes will make this medium spicy, feel free to adjust it to your liking, it’s still delicious without any spice at all.
- It’s delicious on our Sweet Potato Bowl!
- 1 red bell pepper
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Preheat the oven broiler.
Roasted red pepper: Place the red bell pepper on a broiler-safe pan under the oven broiler. Broil the red pepper until it is about half charred, rotating it every few minutes, for about 5 to 10 minutes total. Once charred, remove the red bell pepper from the oven and place the red bell pepper into a heat-safe closed container, like a lidded bowl. Let the roasted red bell pepper cool until it is comfortable to handle the pepper.
Peel the pepper: Once cool enough to handle, remove the stem, seeds, and any skin that peels away easily.
Sauce it: Blend together the roasted red bell pepper flesh, 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, 2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar, and 1 tablespoon vegetable oil until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
