These dried, flaked chillies are an ingredient familiar to most of us nowadays, and are an essential part of any pantry. This is such a versatile spice, which can be used as and when required for a fruity, fresh flavour and a nice chilli kick. Chilli flakes can be used as a table condiment, or when infused with olive oil they can be used to drizzle on pizzas and added to salad dressings – real chilli lovers will also love this as a dip for warm bread!
In cooking, they work really well with any grilled or roasted foods – try sprinkling them over vegetables before roasting, for example. A perfect all-purpose dried chilli.
