Artichoke, Red Pepper & Herb Spread

Artichoke, Red Pepper & Herb Spread

Throwback to my school lunch days where my favourite sandwich filling was a vegetable spread - I'd go through jars of the stuff. Ever since getting my new food processor, I've been mixing and matching my ingredients to create different pastes which can be smothered on rice cakes, bread, crackers - you name it. To be fair, throwing some meaty artichoke, sweet picanto peppers, fragrant, fresh herbs and a pinch of seasoning together was always going to result in something good - for my fellow antipasti - mezze lovers, this one's for you...

Prep time: 5 minutes | Cook time: None | Makes: 1 small jar

5 artichoke hearts
10 small cherry peppers or 4 jarred roasted red peppers
Small handful fresh parsley
Small handful fresh basil
Salt & pepper

Add all of the ingredients together in a food processor and blend into a chunky paste. Spread onto crisp breads or crackers, or dip into with crudités. 

Store in an airtight container in the fridge and use within a week for maximum freshness.
