Roasted Bell Pepper Hors d'oeuvres


Like with life, sometimes with food, what you see is not what you get. Appearances can be deceptive, and so can first impressions. The most comforting, delicious food need not photograph well and may not even illicit signs of awe, that a french macaron or a sugar sculpture can, but who is to say what can feed the appetite and soothe the soul. For some, it may be mom's meatloaf or that aroma of vanilla that permeates the kitchen when a cake rises in the oven. Like life, food deserves a second chance and an open mind.

Bell peppers are an ingredient that finds itself in everything ranging from stir frys to dips, simply tweaking the method of preparation brings out a subtle quality of the bell pepper, a smoky sweetness that pairs with poultry as well as seafood.


Roasted Bell Peppers, in its nascent stage looks charred and unsavoury - something that deserves to be tossed out - but on a second thought, just peeling the dark skin reveals a slick, sweet and smoky rendering of the bell pepper that is a bounty only for the patient. Roasting bell peppers is surprisingly easy - all one needs to do is turn up the broiler and place the bell peppers under it, turning occassionally till all the sides turn black.

The cooled bell peppers now, after removing the seeds, can be preserved in olive oil, to be tossed later in a pasta salad, or to be layered in a panini for an easy summer meal, or can serve as a tasty envelope for any filling that your heart desires.


Roast Bell peppers(4) under a hot broiler till the skin is charred. Let cool, peel the skin & remove the seeds and cut into strips an inch and a half wide.

For the filling:

Mix shredded, cooked chicken (2 cups) with pesto (3 Tbsp.), lime juice(1 Tbsp.) and fresh chopped basil(1 Tsp.). Season with salt and pepper. Spoon the filling into the roasted bell pepper strips, and roll tightly. Refrigerate these rolls for an hour, slice into bite-sized pieces and serve topped with french fried onions.

roasted bell pepper is my favorite starter. I haven't tried them with chicken, but your recipe includes pesto and lime juice, definitely sounds wonderful!

Thanks for the tip about roasting peppers under the broiler! I know some folks do so on a gas burner, but my stove is electric, so that's not an option; I'll have to try your method. Good sounding recipe; did you use toothpicks or something to hold the rolls together?

Gattina -
I'm glad you liked the recipe!

Pushpa -
Thanks !

Thank you for visiting. Life is short - trying out new things is something I look forward to. I'm glad you enjoyed the post :).

Good to hear from you ! You're very welcome for the tip. I rolled the bell peppers tightly and allowed them to sit in the fridge and so when I cut them into rolls, they didn't need anything to hold them together.

wheresmymind -
Absolutely. It would be great to try that out.

Thank you for visiting. It's lovely to meet you!

Thank you!

Vineela -
You're very kind. Thanks!

So it really is greater to decide a 5-8 mega pixel cam and
pay out far more consideration to the Nikon digital camera batteries in its place.
A few in-camera retouching options are also available, including image cropping and red-eye correction.

The portal has been packaged with all these lenses and is an effort towards making it a single stop shop for photographers
looking for Nikon camera lenses.

The samsung galaxy note is available in elegant white and black colour.
Most of the Android smart phones come with their own customized ring tones which can be
set as ring tones and other tones but now in this article
lets learn about something with which you can set
the customized Alarm Ring tones to android devices very easily.
In appearance, Samsung Galaxy Note 2 takes some design riffs from the S3, which feels crystal clear.

The recently unveiled Samsung Galaxy Tab looks set to rival
the popular Apple i - Pad. The Nexus S, however,
has flash while some variants, such as the Samsung Vibrant and
Captivate, of the Samsung Galaxy S do not. Samsung galaxy has been developed as a star

Horizontal viewing angles are definitely fairly inferior by standard standards,
although they're more than made up with regard to by the perfect color production and also contrast provided. TUAW was even claimed that a product will be launched in last year's Christmas shopping season.

It's a very interesting concept where you have to balance objects perfectly on the field which are provided to you. If you are searching for a camera that shoots high quality video clip and stills then this a single is for you. The EOS 5D Mark II naturally characteristics a total-frame sensor, but the resolution enjoys a considerable increase through the 12.

Polarising filters are a must-have accessory for
any landscape photographer. The Power - Shot SD890 IS Digital Camera is on the cutting edge of Canon technology, being the only of its
class to offer a full 5x digital zoom. On the other hand,
the Nano worked fine, but after a couple of hours of steadicam work, my arms
were getting tired.
