Roasted Red Pepper Cheese Rolls
(Kozlenmis, Peynirli Kirmizi Biber)
1 red bell pepper
60 gr soft feta cheese or goat cheese, crumbled
1 fresh green onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp walnuts, crumbled
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp crushed pepper
Cut off the top of the red pepper. Cut it in half and discard the seeds. Set the oven to broil (grill), and heat it up. Place the red pepper on an oven tray, insides facing down and place in the oven. Roast it for about 15 minutes. Afterwards place it in a paper bag for a few minutes so you can peel the skins off easier. Do so, then cut in strips, about 1 inch wide.
Mix the cheese with olive oil, oregano, crushed pepper and fresh green onion in a small plate. Spread the mixture equally on one end of each of the red pepper strips and roll them. Place on a service plate. Garnish with black olives. Serve as an appetizer or with breakfast:) This is a delicious appetizer that will add some colour to your table. It goes with any kind of food.
