Grilled Red Peppers with Goat Cheese and Balsamic Glaze is a versatile low calorie recipe. It can be a delicious appetizer, salad or even lunch. Plus it is quick and easy.
We made it through the first week of school!! It went so fast and fairly easy. The only hiccup came on Friday when the school bus broke down on the way home. Luckily my daughter seemed to take it in stride and we played it off as big adventure. I have had to promise her multiple times today that it will not happen again tomorrow though. I sure hope this week goes as fast and easy.
Speaking of which, if it is a fast and easy dish you need, this one is for you. It takes about 5 minutes; can’t beat that for a dish that could be an appetizer or a side dish. One of the other pluses for me is that since the peppers are grilled, my husband will grill them for me. That saves me a couple more minutes. Woo hoo, I can get Lyla’s lunch made in that amount of time. If you don’t have a grill or a grillmaster don’t worry, you can broil them in the oven for a few minutes.
If that were not reason enough to make the grilled red peppers, here’s another. They are great leftover. I chop up the leftovers and throw them in my eggbeaters the next morning. Love the tang of the balsamic glaze in the eggs. It makes me feel like I am having a fancy breakfast when it is just leftovers. The peppers are also great on a sandwich. I love my little multitasking red peppers. I hope you do too.
