Winter’s apparently over. Suck it, gray sky and winter sleep!
Even the bears are wide awake now – you see them running in the park, stealing honey from the bees, going to the cinema, driving cars, shopping at the grocery store, what else do bears actually do?
They don’t have quite the good reputation, do they?
I only know they sleep all winter long and whenever they’re awake they steal honey.
So to summarize it – bears are lazy thieves.
I hope they don’t try to steal this adorable veggie dip with roasted green peppers I made last week. If they do – this means war.
Because peppers are pretty much my favorite vegetable.
I just love the smell and their taste – fresh and very fragrant.
But when you roast or bake them…
Oh my Goodness, forget about the bears and watch out for me, because I’m ready to attack.
Roasted peppers have something sweet, so flavorful, so complete…and combined with some olive oil and garlic – veggie dip, I’m ready to start a new life with you somewhere far away from here.
You’ll understand when you make this.
You can eat this veggie dip in wraps, burgers, spread it on a toast, on the side or with a salad, dip veggies, nachos or fingers in it – whichever way you chose.
HEALTH AND BEAUTY BENEFITS
I made this roasted peppers dip vampire-proof by adding a few garlic cloves.
Check and mate, you blood suckers!
Go find someone who hasn’t eaten garlic and who doesn’t rub garlic on their hair to make it grow faster and thicker!
Good luck with that!
Everyone knows that garlic is the most awesome beauty and health food in the history of the entire universe and now everyone is using it.
Ha, write that in your diaries!
And your food diaries are probably pretty empty by now – aren’t they?
Garlic 1. Vampires 0.
Garlic can treat a variety of skin diseases – acne, cold sores, psoriasis, athlete’s foot.
It lowers blood pressure, prevents heart diseases, has antibiotic, anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, antioxidant, anti-vampire and…anti-evil properties.
And as if that wasn’t enough: Garlic was also shown to prevent and reverse hair loss.
So, even if you’ve already joined the cast of The Bald and The Beautiful, rubbing garlic on your scalp might help grow your hair.
Can you imagine? Some voodoo magic from Supergarlic here.
I have personally never rubbed garlic on my hair follicles, but I did, however, put the avocado-dill-dip (which also has 2-3 garlic cloves in it) on my face once or twice in the last few weeks and my skin was smoother and better smelling than the backside of a well-nourished baby.
This roasted peppers dip is also good source of fiber (thank you roasted peppers), rich in the antioxidant vitamin E and a perfect way to boost your veggie intake.
It’s vegan, alkaline, gluten-free, grain-free and nut-free.
So, if not for something else – make this dip to prevent vampirism.
- 9 roasted green pointed peppers
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- pinch of salt
- Wash the peppers, remove the stem – I do it by just pushing the stem to the inside of the pepper and then pulling it out (so you don’t need to cut anything, not even a finger!).
- Bake in the oven or grill until they’re soft, for mine it took about 20-30 minutes (baking at 220 °C).
- When ready – let cool, peel the skins and put into a food processor. If you can’t remove all the skins don’t worry – just get off, as much as you can.
- Add garlic, olive oil and a pinch of salt.
- Process at high speed until smooth. And you’re ready. Keep in the fridge up to 5 days. It’s usually gone until then anyway.
If you’d like to make it a little spicy – just add a hot pepper and roast along with the sweet ones. It’s a nice surprise for your guests. Or maybe not.
