Roasted Garlic and Red Pepper Spread – A perfect flavor pairing. So creamy, rich and smooth you will never guess it’s plant-based.
The Magic of Roasted Garlic
Is there anything more appetizing than the scent of garlic roasting in olive oil? Once roasted, a flavor that can sometimes be a little pungent, transforms into a tempered, smooth, nutty deliciousness!
For this very reason I knew that using cashews for the creamy base would be a great success. Add in a little red bell pepper for some sweet tang, cayenne pepper for a little zing, and of course salt and pepper. It’s that easy, and so delicious.
