Roasted Red Peppers

Once you’ve tried roasting your own peppers you won’t settle for the jarred kind again. Roasting fresh red peppers is so easy and the flavour is incomparable. Once roasted you can season any way you please; throw them into salads, make your own roasted red pepper hummus, top pizza or grilled sandwiches with them, and they are the perfect accompaniment to an antipasto platter. Buy them when they are in season and get roasting!

  1. With the rack 6 inches from the top of the oven, put broiler on high. Alternatively, you can also roast peppers on the BBQ. Place the whole peppers on a baking sheet and place in the oven for 30 to 40 minutes, until the skins are completely wrinkled and the peppers are charred.
  2. Remove the pan from the oven and immediately cover with a tea towel. This makes removing the skin much easier. Set aside until the peppers are cool enough to handle.
  3. Remove the stem, peels and seeds and slice the peppers to desired size. You can drain the peppers in a colander overnight to remove excess fluids.
  4. Cover peppers with olive oil, they can be left in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
  5. If you are planning on freezing you can leave the roasted peppers whole (which will help retain moisture) and place in Tupperware containers. Just remove from freezer, thaw, and season with basil, olive oil, garlic, sea salt and pepper. Also great drizzled with balsamic glaze. Yum!
