Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 6 cloves roasted garlic (I roast one small bulb)
  • 1 (14.5 oz) cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 1 (4oz) container crumbled feta (approx 3/4 cup)

Instructions

  1. Place the red pepper on a baking sheet. Cut the top off the bulb of garlic, drizzle with olive oil and wrap in foil. Place it on the baking sheet as well.
  2. Roast the pepper and garlic in the oven at 400 degrees for 40 minutes.
  3. Let pepper cool slightly, peel off the skin and remove stem, seeds and extra liquid.
  4. In a food processor, combine roasted pepper and garlic, crumbled feta, oil, cayenne pepper and beans. Process until well combined.
  5. Taste and add additional cayenne pepper if desired. Serve with crackers, veggies or pita or use as a topping in Greek bowls, on burgers etc.

Notes

The original recipe called for 1/2 cup Greek yogurt. I don’t use that anymore but you can certainly add to give it a boost of protein.
