Jen's Roasted Red Peppers


Red bell peppers work best, because their walls are the thickest.

Wash the peppers and put the whole wet pepper on its side on a hot grill.

As the skin blackens and bubbles, turn them.

When the whole pepper is done this way (15 to 20 min), remove from grill.

Peel the blackened skin while the pepper is warm, and remove stem and core, and rinse.

They can now be frozen for great taste next winter, or marinate them now with olive oil, a bit of salt and garlic. Don’t freeze them if you’ve added the oil, salt or garlic.

Great as a side veggie with grilled chicken or on a chicken burger, or on a pizza, or try using them in roasted red pepper hummus.
