Roasted Farm Basket Pepper Salsa

About every other week we get a farm basket delivered to our house from a local farm with goodies like seasonal veggies, jam, bread and eggs. The past two weeks included peppers, onions and cherry tomatoes in our basket from Hornsby Farms. We used them in salad and tacos, but had an abundance left. So I spread them out on a baking sheet, added some garlic cloves, sprinkled them with salt, pepper and a little bit of olive oil and popped them in the oven at 400 degrees for about 30-40 minutes while I was cooking dinner.This is what it looked like after roasting. The tomatoes were blackened and most had popped open. The peppers and onions were soft and brown around the edges. I let the whole pan cool while we ate dinner and afterward I put the juice of one lime and a handful of cilantro in the food processor, then piled the roasted veggies on top. Gave it about a minute on chop and here is the result! It is smokey, spicy and tastes a little like a romesco sauce because of the large amount of mixed peppers, delicious.
