“From the April 2004 issue of Southern Living. I'm sure garbanzo beans would make a good substitute for the Northern beans. Original recipe called for jarred roasted peppers, but I chose to roast my own.”

  1. To roast the garlic and red bell peppers, first arrange the garlic cloves on a piece of foil, drizzle with some olive oil and fold foil to seal. Next place the whole bell peppers on the baking sheet. Drizzle about 1/2 tablespoon olive oil onto the peppers, turning to coat. Roast for about 15-20 at 425°F Watch carefully!
  2. Once the garlic and roasted bell peppers are done, set aside to cool. In a food processor, squeeze the garlic out of their skin.

Pulse about 5 or 6 times or until combined.
