Prep time: 10 minutes. Total time: 30 minutes

Ingredients
1 medium red bell pepper 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 2 medium shallots, thinly sliced lengthwise 1 pound baby or regular spinach, tough stems discarded 1 teaspoon coarse salt 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

Method
  1. Place bell pepper directly over the flame of a gas-stove burner or under the broiler. Roast pepper, turning with tongs, until blackened all over. Transfer pepper to a medium bowl, and cover immediately with plastic wrap. Let steam 15 minutes. Discard skin, stem, seeds, and ribs; slice pepper lengthwise into 1/8-inch-thick strips, and set aside. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add shallots; cook, stirring, until golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Add roasted pepper; cook, stirring, until heated through, about 30 seconds. Raise heat to medium-high. Add half the spinach, and cook, stirring, until wilted, about 2 minutes. Add remaining spinach, and cook until wilted, about 2 minutes more. Stir in salt, pepper, and lemon juice, and serve.

Mt. Townsend Creamery aims to bring new life to dairy by creating wonderful cheese. From the beginning, we have prioritized using high-quality milk. Today Mt. Townsend’s cheeses are handcrafted from the milk of a single herd of 250 cows that live and graze on a family-owned farm, in Sequim, whose owners have been raising dairy cows for generations. https://mttownsendcreamery.com
