Roasted red pepper snack with cream cheese topping
The first thing I need when I get home after a long day's work is a light snack. Needless to say, a person starving for a snack wouldn't have a lot of time or energy to prepare it. If it is a healthy one, that is definitely an added bonus. Most of my evening bites are sweet, but there are times when I need something salty and spicy. This is an adaptation from a delightful appetizer by the American Heart Association.


Ingredients:

red bell pepper - 1
flavored or fat-free cream cheese - 4 oz.
powdered almonds - 3 tbsp
ground pepper - 1/2 tsp
sliced almonds - 1 tbsp
oi - 1 tsp
salt to taste

Method:

Cut red pepper into 1 inch squares. Heat oil in a frying pan. Add sliced red peppers and stir fry with a pinch of salt and ground pepper for a couple of minutes. Leave it on for a few minutes. Remove from fire when the peppers just start getting grilled, while they and still crisp. Arrange on a serving plate.

Mix cream cheese with almond powder and beat until combined. Place cream cheese mixture in a piping bag
or cake decorator. Run it imaginatively on each pepper slice. Decorate with sliced almonds.
