          I know, I know.., you all are waiting for our #foodiemonday #bloghop. So presenting this week's challenge....! #alphabetfood. Yes, you read it right. Today we choose our main "hero"(ingredient) of recipe, starts from our name's first letter. Hence, Rupal's(mine) ravishing ingredient is...."Rosemary." Wow!! what a radiant ingredient. Using this ravishing and radiant ingredient, I'm going to make " Rosemary & Roasted Red Bell-Pepper Focaccia".

      Focaccia is flat oven-baked Italian bread, which is look-alike in idiosyncrasy and stiffness to pizza dough. I ate the best Focaccia on Paris's street last summer, and believe me I still feel the taste of them. They were highly pleasing to taste and aroma. Focaccia normally seasoned with olive oil, salt and herbs. it might also be topped with cheese and number of vegetables. I used the most ravishing Rosemary herb in this special Focaccia, to give a radiant taste and aroma. The Rosemary herb not only tastes good in culinary dishes, but it is also a good source of iron, calcium and vitamin B6. It also help alleviate muscle pain, improve memory, boost immune and circulatory system, and hair growth. Also used roasted red bell-pepper in this recipe.Such a great combinations of all these awesome herb, veggie and Focaccia.!!
