Here is a little recipe
for capsicums...of any colour.
De-seed and cut the capsicums into strips.
Char grill them
I just put them in a hot dry non stick pan
and pressed them down so they came into full contact with the heat.
I removed them when they began to char...
well as soon as the smoke alarm went off anyway.
Amounts are estimated and all put in a food processor.
- 3/4 cup of prepared capsicum.
- 1/3 cup of cashews
- 2 sliced cloves of garlic
- 1 tablespoon of oregano leaves
- 1/3 cup of olive oil
I buzzed it until just combined (I wanted a rough rustic pesto, but you could go smoother)
Remove from the processor and stir through 1/3 cup of grated parmesan cheese.
Salt and pepper to taste
I used this in a pasta dish
but it was tasty and would go well on biscuits or as a dip.
