Roasted Red Pepper Tip:

red

When purchasing roasted red peppers, you can buy the basic roasted reds stored in water or the roasted reds stored in olive oil and garlic.

Tip of the day: Always use the ones in oil & garlic! 

The marinade brings a rich hearty flavor to the red peppers and the difference in calories is minimal.  Many of the water stored versions actually have a recommendation on the bottle that suggests a marinade of garlic and oil before using – so buying the marinated peppers does the work for you!  Also, with the brands I’ve tried, the garlic is subtle so you won’t walk away with scary breath, just great flavor.

Enjoy!
