What to do with roasted bell peppers? Added warm or at room temperature, they make great additions to this healthy and delicious Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich!
How to roast red peppers: Preheat oven to 475 degrees F. Cut peppers in half, remove stems and seeds, place baking sheet lined with a Silpat or parchment paper cut side down. Roast on middle rack for 40 minutes, rotating baking sheet 180 degrees after 20 minutes. Peppers are ready when blackened and blistered. Using tongs place hot peppers in a bowl and cover with a large plate, let steam for 30 minutes. Once cooled, peel skin away from bottom to top. Discard peels. Peppers are now ready to be used. For more detailed instructions (with pictures) see my guide, How To Roast Bell Peppers, for different methods of roasting and storing peppers.
