  • I like to roast my peppers in the oven, but you can do that on open flame on top of your stove. Roasting the peppers in the oven is simple. Line a baking sheet with either parchment paper or foil (for easy clean up!). Place your peppers on the baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes at 425 F flipping them about halfway through.
  • Peeling the peppers might seem like a pain, but I think you’ll be surprised at how easy and quick it goes. After removing from oven or from the open flame put it on a plate and cover with clear plastic foil and let them stay like that for 5 minutes. The steam will help the skin to be peel very easy.
