Roasted red pepper and garlic mayonnaise

DSC_90471

This roasted red pepper and garlic mayonnaise makes a great dip for grilled vegetables.  This is my kind of veggie heaven platter, char-grilled vegetable to dip into this roasted pepper mayo dip.

 

Red Pepper Mayonnaise 

Roast the peppers and garlic, see method here: How to char and roast bell peppers and roast garlic.

Puree garlic an peppers them until smooth.

Mix with mayo and seasoning, a little chilli or cayenne pepper or tabasco is nice.

If you’re adding the red pepper puree to homemade mayonnaise the resulting mayo will have the consistency of a dip rather than thick mayo because of the water content of the peppers.
