SO HOW'D IT GO?

Without the oil it was too tangy for me. I used 2T oil and 2T water which mellowed it. then I used it on a salad that was baby greens, avocados, pecans and some nutritional yeast (idea from LesLovesVeggies). yummmmm

Yeah, tangy is the first word I thought of to describe it! It's delicious! I used a green bell pepper. I had some trouble getting the skin off (the oven here doesn't get as hot as I'd like--I probably should've left it in longer) but I got most of it off. I also didn't get it as creamy as I wanted since I was using a hand blender, but it was delicious anyway. I ended up using about two tablespoons of oil, and I didn't add any water. I also didn't have apple cider vinegar, so I substituted a plain version. It made enough for four big 'ol salads, so it's gonna be a good weekend! Today I just put it over a huge plate of greens with some walnuts and a sprinkling of nutritional yeast. Tomorrow I'll probably load up on more veggies. Thanks for the recipe!

how does the recipe turn out without it? Is it really chunky, or does it come out okay?

i actually used a lot less oil, a tablespoon or so. i added plain water, but that way it doesn't store well.
it has a consistency of thinned applesauce. covers salad leaves well.
the taste is a bit tangy with pronounced taste of bell pepper.

I want to try this tonight! When you say the oil is optional, how does the recipe turn out without it? Is it really chunky, or does it come out okay? I might try just adding a little at a time until it's a good consistency and I'll see how much I end up using.
