This is a really basic way to roast peppers for use in any recipe. Choose any color peppers you like, or use a variety of colors for a beautiful presentation. After they are roasted you can add an oil and balsamic dressing, or fry in olive oil and garlic to serve with crusty bread.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 6 red bell peppers

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C).
  2. 2 Cut the peppers into quarters. Remove the seeds and the membranes. Roast the peppers until the skin blisters and turns black. Remove from oven and cover with plastic, or a tea towel, or place in a paper bag until cool. The skins should peel away off of the peppers easily when cooled.

  5. Can't believe so many thought this a good way to roast peppers!! Had a huge bag full from my garden, so thought I would try this way (like to roast them and freeze for cooking through the winter). These turned out way too dry!! Will do the next couple batches my old way -- just - Read more ...
  6. Great. Served on top of the Tequila Lime Chicken recipe from this site for something a little different. Make sure you let them get blackened all over or you will not be able to peel off the skins.
  7. I freeze the roasted peppers in small amounts wrapped in Saran, then in a Ziploc, and use them all year.
