I bought a huge bag of peppers from Costco the other day and last night was thinking I’d better use them or they’ll soon be trash. Since going to the Local Food Expo the other day, I haven’t been able to keep roasted red peppers out of my mind; they’re so good! I never really thought about making them myself though…until last night. Turns out, they’re super easy to make!
I used red, yellow, and orange peppers. All I did was set my oven to 500 degrees and cook the peppers for about 30 minutes, making sure to turn them a couple times. Once the peppers looked nice and wrinkly (and a little charred), I took them out.
Yea, they were definitely charred.
*I forgot to mention I covered the peppers with foil for about 30 minutes to let them cool down, then I skinned them.* Now comes the hardest part (which really isn’t hard): skinning the peppers and removing the stems and seeds.
These smelled amazing by the way.
I didn’t realize that you skin the peppers after roasting them, so in case you’re like me, yes, you literally peel the skin off. The skin gets kinda tough (not to mention it’s charred) so it’s not easy to eat anyway. Once I took the stem and seeds out, I just ripped the skin off with my fingers, then cut the peppers up into quarters. I drizzled a little olive oil and salt on top.
I served the peppers up with a sweet potato and chicken fingers (recipe from Julie). By the way, I added coconut oil and cinnamon to my sweet potato and it was awesome!
Now onto some preggo news: I’m officially 4 months pregnant! We’re a little behind on picture taking so the most recent pic I have is 15 weeks.
I saw this super cute idea on Little Baby Garvin’s blog and think it’s a fun way to keep people up to date on how things are going. Don’t worry, I won’t inundate you on a daily basis with pregnancy stuff…I’ll try to keep it to once a week :).
