Servings: makes 1 cup
2 large red bell peppers, seeded and coarsely chopped
1 small onion, coarsely chopped
1 clove garlic, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
½ tablespoon prepared horseradish
1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce
Place the peppers, onion and garlic in a food processor and process until quite smooth. Transfer to a pan and add the remaining ingredients. Cook, uncovered over low heat for at least 30 minutes to intensify flavors and reduce sauce slightly. Season with a bit of sea salt, if desired, before serving.
Hint: This makes a great dip for pita bread, a spread for crackers, a topping for griddle cakes, or a sauce for pasta or spaghetti squash. If you like your foods a bit spicier, add more of the horseradish or chili garlic sauce to taste.
