I had always been a bit apprehensive of roasting my own peppers so I continued to pay a ton for them at the store.

Then I had three peppers that needed to be used and I decided to just try roasting my own. Its easy to do right in the broiler! Heat the broiler on high, place peppers on a pan and essentially let them burn, turning to burn all sides. (Everyone can burn food, right?) Once you let the peppers cool you can easily the remove peel and seeds.

That’s it!

This relish can be used for just about anything. Try it with grilled steak or fish. Put it on pizza. Eat it with slices of bread and some melted cheese. Try it with eggs or just plain on its own.

Whatever you do with it, it’s sure to make any food look good and add delicious roasted pepper flavor to every bite.

Ingredients (2-3 cups relish)

  • 3 peppers (I used yellow, orange and red)

Instructions

Preheat broiler to high.

Place peppers on a baking sheet on top rack, closest to the broiler.

Cook for about 15 minutes, rotating the peppers every few minutes when the skin gets dark.

Let peppers cool.

Remove seeds and skin. The skin should peel off pretty easily.

daily eats: 2.4.13

Hi! Long time, no daily eats posts. (3 months actually!) I hope you all had a great Super Bowl (if you celebrate). I tried to catch most of the commercials and ate artichokes, chips with salsa and queso and chicken fingers. (I have no idea…but they sounded SO good!) I sipped on some wine with

curried lentil turkey soup

This soup was a total accident. I didn’t have any leftover turkey – or plans for leftover turkey. But then on Saturday, we decided to pick up a 15 pound turkey and have another round of Thanksgiving. My thoughts immediately went to leftovers. Can you blame me? Curried lentil soup with turkey came to mind

I’m a little obsessed with chicken salads. Ok, a lot obsessed. The most recent obsession was inspired by a lunch from Clementine, a cute little cafe a few blocks away from my office. I love getting 2 or 3 of their fresh and seasonal salads from the deli case. Everything I’ve had has been great,

I know, in the midst of pumpkin and squash mania (aka October) I should be gushing about something orange, but I’m gushing about something white. Typically I stick to the basics, and drizzle the cauliflower ¬†with olive oil and season liberally with salt and pepper and

Sooo, I’m currently obsessed with miso butter. I put it on vegetables, I dream about it on steak or seafood and I wonder what else I can put it on. Can’t. Stop. Thinking. About. It. Miso is one of those “weird” ingredients that might be a little scary, but I promise, it is an ingredient
