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.
