DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F
  • Place the peppers on a roasting tray, drizzle over the olive oil, place in the oven and roast for 35-40 minutes or until the peppers have slightly blackened, turning them occasionally.
  • Place the peppers in a large plastic food bag, seal and allow to cool.
  • Meanwhile, soak the bread in a little cold water, then drain and squeeze out excess moisture.
  • Remove the peppers from the bag, reserving any of the juices.
  • Peel the peppers, halve and remove the seeds.
  • Place the red pepper halves in a food processor with the bread, garlic, cayenne and the pepper juices and blend until smooth.
  • With the motor running, slowly drizzle in the extra-virgin olive oil.
  • Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Toast or griddle some slices of crusty bread and spread the paste over it.
