How to Roast Peppers

Roasted Peppers

Roasted Peppers

Everyone has their own method for roasting peppers. This is the one that’s been working for me for years.

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C (350°F)
  2. Slice the cheeks of the peppers you wish to roast (to to bottom of the bulging parts) and this way you don’t get the white bits.
  3. On an oven tray lined with baking paper, sprinkle some olive oil and place the pepper slices skin side down in an even layer. Sprinkle lightly with salt.
  4. Place in the upper part of the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Then, using tongs, turn the pieces over and roast for another 20-25 minutes, or until the skins start blackening.
  5. Remove from the oven and place the peppers in a small plastic bag and seal. Leave them for at least 15 minutes. Then remove the pepper skins – they should slide off easily.
