All it takes is 5 ingredients and 5 minutes to make this very versatile Roasted Red Pepper Spread! Great on sandwiches, crackers, or as a dip!
When I lived in Utah, there was a store called Great Harvest Bread Company. I would go there often for lunch. At the time I was a vegetarian so my go-to sandwich was cheese and vegetables. I forget the name they gave it, but my favorite part was the roasted red pepper spread. That particular store closed and the other local stores in the chain didn’t make that sandwich. I assume they are all individually owned and operated.
It has been years since I’ve lived out West. Actually, it’s been exactly 7 years since I moved away from Utah. While I don’t miss much, every once in awhile I will randomly crave that sandwich!
Now, 7 years later, I finally made my own version of Roasted Red Pepper Spread and it only takes 5 minutes to make it! I honestly can not say if it’s a comparable duplicate for the original since it’s been so long. However, I can say it’s pretty darn good! And, I still enjoy it on a vegetarian sandwich or wrap.
It’s actually a really versatile spread and can be used on sandwiches and wraps that also have meat on them, as well as crackers. I think it even works great as a vegetable dip!
My Roasted Red Pepper Spread recipe is so simple – 5 ingredients and 5 minutes is all it takes!
