Marinated Roasted Red Peppers And Mozzarella

This is a very delicious marinate … it has the perfect blend of charred roasted peppers and the creaminess of the mozzarella … to make it you will need :

– 1 big red pepper

–  3/4 cup mozzarella cheese, cubed

– 1/2 cup olive oil

– 1/4 ts minced garlic (a very small clove)

– 1/4 ts dried rosemary

– 1/4 ts dried oregano

– 1/4 ts dried sage

roasting pepper step 1

First start by placing the bell pepper on a hot plate over high heat …

Char it from all side … dont worry that it looks black .. we want that charred taste …

Now after it gets black from all side ….place it in a bowl and cover it with cling wrap .. and keep it for atleast 15 to 20 mins …

olive oil mix

While waiting you can prepare the oil for marinating … in a bowl .. mix the olive oil  … garlic .. rosemary .. oregano and sage .. and set aside …

roasting pepper step 4

After 20 mins .. take out the cling wrap … be careful the pepper might be still hot … if it was too hot to handle .. cover and keep a while longer … if its cool enough .. then peel it .. u will be surpirsed how easy it gets off ….

Then cut the roasted pepper into medium size peices ….

And there u got it … let it marinate for atleast 30 mins … the longer u marinate it the better the taste … and if u r planning to keep it for a long time … add enough olive oil to cover …this will preserve it …. store it in the fridge..
