Roasted Red Peppers

Roasted red peppers are called for in a lot of recipes and rather than continue to type it out each time, I thought these babies deserved their own post!  So when I was making this delicious pizza I'll share with you tomorrow, I decided to document the process of roasting the red peppers as well.  Love the difference a little natural light makes!  Come on spring!

start with two beautiful red peppers

get them nice and broiled

then peel off the skins!

Making your own roasted red peppers is really as easy as a four simple steps:

1.  Turn your oven onto the broiler setting.  Place red peppers on their side in a roasting pan of some sort. 
2.  Roast on all sides turning every few minutes as needed until all sides are blackened.
3.  Remove peppers from the oven and cover pan with a clean kitchen towel allowing peppers to steam for about 5-10 minutes.
4.  Once peppers have cooled, carefully peel off blackened skin.  Then remove stem and seeds from inside.
