Roasted-Red-Pepper Dip

This versatile dip of roasted red peppers, raisins, and capers can be spread onto grilled flatbread, used as a sandwich condiment, or spooned over grilled vegan chicken.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Yield Makes 3 cups
Serves 12
6 large red bell peppers
1 cup golden raisins, coarsely chopped (6 ounces)
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons salt-packed capers, rinsed well and drained
1 1/2 teaspoons coarsely chopped fresh oregano
Coarse salt
Red-wine vinegar 
1. Roast peppers over a gas flame or under the broiler, turning occasionally, until charred all over, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a heatproof bowl, and cover with plastic wrap. Let stand until cool enough to handle. Peel and seed peppers.
