Sweet Mini Peppers with JOG n Cheese Paste


I always loved eating Lebanese food.. their hummus, Falafel.. Pita bread… yummy !!! I wanted to try something in the similar lines..

Jog is an abbreviation used by me for Jalapeños, Olives, Garlic.. This is very simple… the paste gets ready in a jiffy.. no chopping involved… the paste can be used as a dip too if you wish to….

The garlic adds a great flavour, the Jalapeños add a nice hot flavour and the Olive n Cheese cuts some of the fiery flavour added by the Jalapeños.

Ingredients: (Serves 4), Preparation Time: 15 mins
Sweet mini peppers – 6-8, sliced as shown in the picture and de-seeded
Olives – 8-10 pitted mix of green and black, I used the ready to eat olives preserved in Olive Oil, You can use either black or green if you want to.
Jalapeños – 15 sliced and pickled pieces
Mozzarella cheese – grated 2 or 3 tbsp
Olive oil – 1 tbsp if required
Salt to taste
Garlic cloves – 1 medium-sized

Method:
Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees in the oven mode.

In the meanwhile in a mixer jar add the olives, jalapeños, cheese and the garlic and grind to a fine paste as shown in the picture. Once the paste is ready check the salt since the pickled jalapeños should add the required salt to the paste, if required sprinkle a little more salt and mix well. If the paste seems to be dry then add some olive oil and mix well.

Now add the paste to the de-seeded and halved mini and peppers as shown. Once the oven is preheated bake the peppers for about 10 mins. Take out the baked peppers.

Garnishing:
If you want you can garnish with some more mozzarella on the top. I did not as there is cheese already in the paste.

Serving Suggestions:
Serve the peppers hot with some fresh salad if you want to.
