Hello food lovers! Here is today a recipe that you are going to love, in summer or in winter…
My red pepper, cream cheese and savory crumble jars!!
The recipe is quite easy to make, you just need a little time ahead of you. You will prepare a mechouia salad which will have to cool down (I recommend to make it in advance, you can keep it a few days in your fridge) and that takes time…
This said, the rest of it is really simple!! You’re are going to fall for it, that’s for sure!!
Those jars can be served as an appetizer or as a starter (in this case, I increase a little bit the quantities and add a nice slice of bread…).
And it’s so amazingly fresh and good!! The thyme crumble brings a tasty and crunchy feeling, and you know how the red pepper / cream cheese combo works…
A good iron cast casserole (Staub as far as I’m concerned)
Let’s do this!
The recipe, Chef!
