Easy Roasted Red Peppers


Easy Roasted Red Pepper- MyRealFoodLife.comRoasted red peppers are so incredibly easy to make, and add a terrific flavour shot to any sauce or soup or spread or sandwich… Now that they are super cheap and in season, go for it!  

Doing roasted red peppers the old fashioned way is finicky and diffiuclt and messy.  I’m not a fan… rotating them on the barbecue or in the oven,  making sure they are perfectly charred but not too much, putting them in a paper bag to sweat, trying to peel off the skins and cleaning out sticky seeds, burning your fingers, dripping everywhere…  making a mess… 

There is a much easier way.  And so worth it.   Roasted red peppers are one of those perfect flavour layers in so many dishes-  pureed with hummus,  or your favorite dip, or with cream cheese for a great spread (if you can have dairy).  Add to tomato sauce  for a kick, or in lasagna layers.  Stick a couple in a bun with some sharp cheese and you have a terrific sandwich.  The list is endless.

And here is how to do it.   You’ll be surprised at how easy and quick it is!
