Roasted Red Pepper Cheese Rolls

(Kozlenmis, Peynirli Kirmizi Biber)

Roasted Red Pepper Cheese Rolls
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.

In an attempt to impress my Turkish husband I began to visit Binnur's Turkish Cookbook and suprised him with these peppers. They were awesome! I added cream cheese to mine, as well as cumin and red pepper. I just put everything in a food processor and then stuff the peppers. I let them sit overnight and they are delicious. They have become frequent request at family and friend gatherings!

Do you recommend dried or fresh oregano, Binnur?

I used dried oregano but both can be used for this recipe. Fresh ones are a little bit stronger so you can adjust the amount if you use fresh oregano:)
