Ingredients for Roasted Red Bell Peppers on the Grill:

  • 8 to 10 bell peppers

  • 1/2 to 2 tsp. of salt
  • 4 garlic cloves – sliced or chopped
  • cooking spray
  • fresh basil – only when serving

 

Directions on How To Roast Red Peppers on the Grill… 

To roast peppers on the grill, you will need to follow these instructions: (*Full recipe card below!)

1. First, lay them down directly on top of your outdoor grill.   On medium-high heat, grill the peppers for a few minutes until charred on all sides. Grill them until lightly charred, about 3-5 minutes on all 4 sides. Use kitchen tongs to turn them, one by one.  Continue until all the peppers are done.

 2. Next, place the charred peppers into a large brown paper bag.  Close the bag, and allow the peppers to cool down.

*SECOND OPTION: you can place them into a pot with a lid. Cover. Allowing the peppers to steam for about 5 minutes. 

 3. When peppers are cooled enough to handle, then take them out of the bag, one at a time.

 4. Gently peel off the charred skins. While you are working with the peppers, use your fingers to pull them apart, and into pieces, then remove all seeds and membranes from the pepper. Discard all seeds and membranes.

 5. Place the cleaned peppers into a nearby bowl or on a plate, until all the peppers have been done.  QUICK NOTE: Do not rinse the peppers under water, you can rinse your hands, but not the peppers while working with them.

6.  Finally, place all the cleaned peppers into a mason jar or two.

 7. Fill the jars with extra virgin olive oil, fresh chopped garlic, and some salt.  Add enough olive oil (if needed) to level with the peppers to marinate them.  Mix gently and TASTE for salt.  Add additional salt if needed.

8. Seal the jars tightly, and marinate them at room temperature for several hours or more before serving.

 It’s that EASY!

Notes and Tips…

  • Can we refrigerate them? Yes, if you keep them chilled, they will keep fresh for up to 2 months.
  • If refrigerated, these peppers will only need a few minutes at room temperature for the oil to thaw.

Options for serving…

  • Make sandwiches! Our family makes sandwiches weekly with our favorite Italian bread, some prosciutto, and sliced cheeses.
  • Serve it as a side! Pull out a desired amount, add some fresh chopped basil, toss it, and set aside. 
  • Enjoy them alone with some toasted bread.
  • Add them to salads.
