Roasted Red Pepper Rolls Stuffed with Goat Cheese & Herbs
Makes 6 servings. Difficulty
2 red bell peppers 1/4 cup goat cheese 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped 1/2 teaspoon fresh oregano, chopped Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Place the peppers (whole) directly under a broiler and blacken on all sides. Transfer peppers to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let steam for 10 minutes. Remove the peppers from the bowl and peel off the skins and discard the stem and seeds. Slice the peppers into strips about 1 to 1-1/2 inches wide and about 4-5 inces long (the length of the pepper).
In a small bowl, combine the goat cheese with the fresh herbs. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Lay the pepper strips flat on a work surface. Top each pepper strip with about 1/2 to 1 tablespoon of the goat cheese mixture. Roll the pepper around the mixture. Secure with toothpicks if desired. Place on a serving tray and serve!
