Roast Red Pepper Purée
Just as kitchen pantry needs a few bottles of tomato purée so to should they have a few bottles of Roast red pepper Purée. Roast red pepper purée is a thick paste made by roasting, then cooking down red peppers. The purée has a thicker consistency and a deeper flavour. A popular ingredient in the middle east and most of the Spanish speaking countries, it’s concentrated, almost meaty taste adds nuance and body to everything from soups and stews, to casseroles and roasts.
While recipes often call for the paste to be added along with a liquid—usually broth, water or wine—chefs have a secret to coaxing more intense flavour out of the ingredient. How? They add the paste earlier in the cooking process. By letting paste “brown” in the pan, and sautéing it with spices and other aromatic ingredients like cooked onions, you can boost the flavour of your dish in a big way.
Once opened, store in the fridge.
