Roast Peppers in Oil

3 December 2008 One Comment

As part of our bi-weekly box of farm-fresh produce from Mariquita Farms, we ended up getting a significant amount of red peppers. Unsure exactly what to do with this bounty, I did a little research ad came up with this recipe. It’s incredibly quick, and the results are very delicious.

Yield

1 cup

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs. peppers. Any kind will do, just watch the heat level depending on what you can tolerate
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tsp. capers in oil or salt
  • salt
  • pepper
  • good-quality olive oil

Directions

Roast peppers over open flame or under broiler until charred on all sides. Place in paper bag, close and let steam for 15 minutes. Remove skin and seeds and cut flesh into long strips.

Place peppers into an airtight glass jar and squeeze lemon juice over the top. Slice garlic cloves thinly and sprinkle across the top. Add capers, salt and pepper to taste and mix thoroughly. Add enough olive oil to cover everything by 1/2 inch. Close tightly and refrigerate. It tastes best after a few days, and will keep at least a few weeks.
