Roasted peppers

There are several ingredients that I like to have in my refridgerator. Roasted peppers is one. They are a great addition to salads, to top pizzas or as a dish of their own.

With a gas stove, it only takes a few minutes to cook.

Place pepper directly on top of gas stove. This can also be done on a BBQ.

Rotate as they blacken and cook until they are black and blistered. Try not to over cook, they will turn white if they are over cooked.

Once cooked, place in a bowl and cover.

Let them rest until cool.

At this point they can easily be peeled. Resist the temptation to place them under running water. The skin will easily rub off.

Once most of the skin is off, cut into large sections and using a knife scrap off the rest of the skin and the seeds.

Place in a container with a touch of oil. They can be store in the refrigerator for days.
