Homemade roasted red peppers are easy to make and a delicious addition to soups, salads, sandwiches, hummus, tofu scramble and avocado toast.



  • 14 red peppers


  1. Wash the peppers and cut in half from the stem down. Remove the seeds and discard.
  2. Smash the peppers so they lay flat and place on a roasting pan in a single layer.
  3. Arrange an oven rack in the top third of the oven just so it’s not too close to the top. Turn the oven on to “Broil”.
  4. Place the peppers in the oven and broil for 12-16 minutes until the skins are almost completely blackened. 
  5. Remove from the oven and let cool enough to handle.
  6. Peel the blackened skins off and discard.
  7. Enjoy the peppers right away, use in a recipe or store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 5 days. 


This recipe works for yellow, orange and green bell peppers as well as jalapeños, serrano peppers or any other kind of pepper.
