How To Roast The Perfect Pepper

Greetings from Founder Katia-- Today I'm here to share with you the secret to roasting the perfect pepper! Tis the season for warm salads, and adding roasted peppers is the ideal way to warm up your home for the holidays.

Tip #1 Remember, just because it’s easier to run your peppers under cold water after you roast them, please do not :) Take your time and enjoy your cooking and please always Buy Local. Buy Organic.

Step 1 Wash your peppers first, let them rest on your counter. Then, bring them to the oven and bake at a temperature of  375-400 degrees for 45-minutes, flipping sides every 20 minutes.

Step 2 After your peppers are thoroughly charred, remove them from the oven and let your beauties cool. How long will they take to cool? It might take a half an hour, maybe more, but it’s worth it. Do not be tempted to run your peppers under cold water to cool them. You will wash away the delicious flavors!

Step 3 Once cooled, remove the head, the seeds and the skin. Add olive oil, paprika, cumin, salt to taste, a hint of white vinegar, parsley, & you’re done.

Tips & Tricks: For anther recipe you can add only these three ingredients: argan oil, cumin and salt to taste. Also, this goes great with french bread! Warm it up in the oven and serve (for crunchy deliciousness, wet your hands, pat the french bread & place in the oven). Once cooked and seasoned, the peppers can last up to a week in a fridge.
