Basics: Oven Roasted Red Pepper

Oven Roasted PeppersUpon viewing our Colorful Chicken Wrap post, one of our lovely followers asked a very important question: How do you roast a red pepper? As promised Miss Heather Ham, here is the answer to your question.

Ingredients (yields 1/2 cup):

  • 2 red peppers, seeded and halved
  • 3 Tbsp of extra virgin olive oil

Directions: Preheat your oven to 350ºF. On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, place your 4 red pepper halves and drizzle olive oil on top. Roast in the oven for 1 hour.

Oven Roasted PeppersOnce out of the oven, let the peppers cool for about 15 minutes. Peel off the peppers’ skin with your fingers (it should come off easily). In an air tight container, store your oven roasted red peppers in the fridge. You can add these to your salads, sandwiches, pizzas, you name it!

Oven Roasted PeppersN.B. I’ve used red peppers in this recipe, but feel free to use orange or yellow peppers! Also, I’ve received great advice from our #1 fan and manly man Phil: “You can also roast your peppers on a BBQ grill or gas stove top . To cool them down put them in a bowl of cold water with ice”. Thanks Phil!

Music: I don’t think it’s possible to listen to some Stevie Wonder without smiling & tapping your foot. If you are one of the rare people who can, you have no soul, I suggest consulting your doctor.
