Just because you don’t have a grill doesn’t mean you can’t make roasted red peppers at home. All you need is the pepper, a gas stove and a pot with a lid, and you’ll have delicious roasted red peppers in no time. And they can be added to anything — salad, sandwich, a side at dinner, you name it.
Step 1: Wash the pepper.
Never forget to wash your produce!
Step 2: Turn the burner on very high heat and place pepper directly over flames
Step 3: Use tongs to frequently move the pepper around, distributing heat to all sides.
Step 4: Continue cooking the pepper so it blackens on all sides.
It will be blotchy at first — keep at it.
Step 5: It should look like this when it’s ready.
Step 6: Place the pepper in a pot and cover, letting it steam for 10 minutes.
Step 7: Peel off the blackened layer — it should fall off easily.
Step 8: Cut the pepper in half and discard the seeds and membrane.
Step 9: You should now have two pretty pepper halves. Slice ‘em up any way you like.
