Roasted Red Pepper Aioli

This smooth, creamy dip made from freshly roasted red peppers goes with almost anything. It’s great as a spread on bread, as a dip with chips, or served with baked potato. Roast the bell peppers the day before (steps 1-6), so they have plenty of time to cool down. Then finish the rest of the dip in less than 5 minutes the next day.

Make this delicious dip with freshly roasted red peppers to go with any appetizer or main dish.

Ingredients:

Serves 4

  • 2 medium red bell peppers
  • ½ cup (115g) mayonnaise
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • Salt and pepper

Directions:

  1. Wash your hands with warm soapy water.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
