Roasted red bell peppers are available commercially, and their ingredients are not bad at all. Not a food I would consider “processed,” but at the same time, they are somewhat pricey and if you can make your own, so much the better, right? Especially when bell peppers are on sale!
- 4 red bell pepper seeded, stemmed, and halved
- Preheat broiler. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. Place pepper halves cut side down on prepared baking sheet. Flatten with the palm of your hand. Broil 15-20 minutes or until skin is blackened and blistery. Using tongs, carefully place peppers in a zip top plastic bag. Seal.
- Let stand 15 minutes. Remove from bag and gently peel and discard skin. Use immediately or store up to 1 week in the fridge.
