Roasted Red Peppers – How to make it.Ingredients
- 4 red peppers
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Preheat oven to 400 F / 204 C. Line baking tray with aluminium foil. Lay peppers on their sides on the foil, stems sideways and drizzle the olive oil on top.
- Put the tray in the oven and allow to roast for 20 minutes. Remove tray, turn red peppers over (1/2 turn) and then put them back in the oven and leave to roast for another 20 minutes. The skin of the pepper should be soft and charred and they shook look slightly collapsed. Put them back in the oven for a few minutes if they don’t look ready.
- Leave them to cool and then remove the skin, take out the stem and remove the seeds. A little bit of a process, but well worth the effort.
- Cut into strips and place in a jar. The natural juice from the peppers is lovely, or you can marinade them. They should keep in the refrigerator for one to two weeks. If you want to freeze them divide the batch into zip lock plastic bags and place the, in the freezer.
