Perfectionist cook's Note:
This is something I came up with when I saw some beautiful hot red peppers at the local market and thought about how to make a chilli sauce without any difficult ingredients. Thus I came up with the idea of blending them with semi-dried tomatoes. It is very potent so use sparingly to accompany dishes which need a bit of a 'kick'.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Heat olive oil in a frying pan and fry the peppers until they have browned all over. Be careful they spit!
- 2Put them in a plastic bag to sweat for 5 minutes and then peel removing the seeds and add to a small blender or multi-chopper.
- 3Chop semi-dried tomatoes and add to blender. Try to use plump semi- dried tomatoes in olive oil as they taste better.
- 4Add garlic powder, onion powder, vinegar and a little olive oil.
- 5Blend until mixture becomes a thick red paste.
- 6Keep in a small glass jar in the fridge covered with a layer of olive oil to keep it from spoiling. It should last several weeks.
