Fat-free roasted red pepper spread

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 5 minutes

2 medium red bell peppers (approximately 2 1/2–3 inches in diameter)
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup great northern beans (canned or fully cooked), rinsed and drained
2 tablespoons low-sodium tomato paste
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1 clove garlic, minced

Preheat broiler. Remove stem, core, and inner white ribs from peppers. Cut into large chunks and place on broiler-safe pan. Broil about 4–5 minutes on one side only until flesh softens and a few browned spots appear. Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until combined. Mixture will be thick but spreadable. Use as an appetizer spread or as a sandwich spread.

Yield: 1 cup
