Art on the Table

Taking simple ingredients and turning them into something so beautiful. I can't explain the satisfaction I get after preparing a beautiful dish. Using creativity and having a vision is what I think makes cooking an art.
I found these amazing ancient peppers at a market in Chicago and the color and size of these things were so eye catching that I just needed to take them home with me. I had a vision of smothering them with olive oil and roasting them in the oven, and then stuffing them with delicious cream cheese. I did exactly that. And oh my goodness, they were perfectly delicious just as I had imagined them to be.  I made these stuffed ancient peppers a while ago but never had a chance to post them on my blog. They have since then, become one my favorite recipes. They are so easy to make and I needed my readers to know about this delicious and very beautiful dish. Serve it as an appetizer or a snack. Bring beautiful color to your plate by serving them as a side dish. Whichever way you decide to serve these peppers, they are a must try dish. They are art on the table. ;)

Wash and slice peppers in half leaving stems on. 
Drizzle with your favorite olive oil and bake them in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes or so until they are a nicely roasted. Broil for about 1 minute.
Mix together softened cream cheese and season it any way you want. I added a minced up yellow pepper a green onion, and dry vegetable dip mix.
Stuff the peppers with cream cheese mixture and serve. 
These will not last long! ;)
