How to Roast Bell Peppers

by Deliciously Organic on September 13, 2012

Roasted bell peppers are an easy food to make at home, but often times we purchase them from the store instead. Many roasted and jarred bell peppers contain preservatives and additives that are best to avoid if possible. Making roasted bell peppers at home is another small change you can make to move towards a clean diet.

Here’s an easy step-by-step tutorial to get you started:

Cut bell pepper in half and remove seeds. Place cut-side down on a baking sheet.

Place under the broiler, and cook until the skin starts to blister, about 3-5 minutes.

 Remove from oven and immediately place bell pepper in a bowl and cover tightly with an airtight lid or plastic wrap.

 After 10 minutes, remove the plastic wrap or lid. When pepper is cool enough to handle, peel skin off.

 Store bell pepper in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Ingredients

  • 1 bell pepper

Instructions

Preheat broiler to high. Cut bell pepper in half and remove seeds. Place cut-side down on a baking sheet. Place under the broiler, and cook until the skin starts to blister, about 3-5 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately place bell pepper in a bowl and cover tightly with an airtight lid or plastic wrap. After 10 minutes, remove the plastic wrap. When pepper is cool enough to handle, peel skin off. Roasted bell peppers will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about 4 days.

As an alternative, you can cover the roasted pepper with olive oil or even some seasonings.

Can you freeze or can from this point? Can I water bath can them or does it need to be a pressure canner?

I haven’t frozen them before, but I see no reason why that wouldn’t work. Yes, you could do can them using a water bath.

This sounds good and I have some peppers in my garden, so I’d like to try them. How do you use the roasted peppers? Do you have a recipe to use them as an ingredient, or do they go well with a particular meal?

I like to use them in place of basil for pesto, use them to make crackers, add them to salads, or pasta dishes. Here’s a link to the crackers…my kids are a bit obsessed with these! http://deliciouslyorganic.net/paleo-grain-free-gluten-free-crackers/

Great place with healthy and yummy recipes! I’m originally from Bulgaria and we eat tons of roasted peppers, we use them in salads, dips etc. I usually roast whole peppers on the BBQ, it is faster and easier! But for the snowy winter days your idea is great and I’ll try it for sure!
