How to Roast Red Peppers

Roasted Red Peppers are an insanely good component to many dishes and so easy to make. They're one of the umami-rich vegetables that make you crave more.

Enjoy them in salads, sandwiches, buzz into Harissa, toss them into pasta recipes. Really, these are pure joy. Luscious and lovely.

 

This is all you need to know.

1. Wash, rinse and halve. Remove the stems, seeds and flatten on a cookie sheet lined with foil or a silicone baking mat.

2. Place under the broiler until they're black and charred.

3. Place roasted peppers in a paper lunch bag.

 

The steam from the hot peppers will make slipping off the skins easy.

Store in closed container in some olive oil. I can't tell you how long they might last, because they get eaten so quickly, it's never been an issue.
