07 Aug Roasted Red Peppers
Now I grew up in an Italian Household with my parents often entertaining, and this dish has usually always been on the antipasto menu! They are DELICIOUS, and absolutely EASY to make…
ROASTED RED PEPPERS
1 Red Pepper per person
1 Clove of Garlic
A Few Sprigs of Fresh Parlsey
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Ground Black Pepper
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
2. So we are going to start with our peppers, I am going to make 2 for today. Before we cook with them, let’s just rinse them anyway to be safe!
3. After they are rinsed, dry them, and place them on a baking sheet covered with tin foil.
4. Pop those babies in the oven, and leave them in there for about a half hour or until the skins look like they’re starting to charr and start peeling off of the pepper. You also want your peppers to feel soft to the touch, not really firm anymore, so make sure the insides are cooked before taking them out!
5. Once they are cooked all the way through and the skin looks like it’s lifting and starting to peel itself off, take them out and let them cool before handling!! Once they are cooled enough remove the stem/core and start peeling the skins off!
6. After removing the skins, start running the peppers under cool water to remove all of the seeds and any skin remaining off the pepper slices. Place them in a dish, because we are going to start seasoning these babies!
7. Chop up your cloves of garlic & collect your Parsley from your garden,
or purchase it from your local farmer’s market as well! If that’s the case, give them a little rinse as well. Add your Extra Virgin Olive Oil to your peppers,sprinkle your garlic and parsley over the top, and then lastly add your pinch of sea salt and your ground black pepper!
8. Give that a good mixing, and you might wanna wrap this up and fridge it for 20 – 30 minutes before eating. They are best when they are cold!
It’s been a great day of experimenting in my kitchen, and showing you this recipe that I grew up with…
Try them yourself, and let me know how you like them, or if you decide to try them, and you have your own ideas to add to them, I’d love to hear about em!
