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.

 

Roasted Pepper Relish

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients (2-3 cups relish)

  • 3 peppers (I used yellow, orange and red)
  • 2 Tbsp chopped kalamata olives
  • 2 Tbsp chiffonade fresh parsley
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper

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.

Thinly slice the peppers and blot with a paper towel.

Toss with olives and parsley, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt & pepper to taste.

Will keep in the refrigerator for 5 days.

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

What a wonderful day yesterday was – I had the day off in observance of Yom Kippur. Even though I’m not Jewish, the organization that I work for is and I’m fortunate enough to get a few extra days off this fall. It was so nice to have a slower day to catch up on

salmon & avocado omelet

I’ve been majorly spoiled this summer. In addition to my latest shipment of salmon from Copper River, the California Avocado Commission also sent me a case of avocados. Apparently they got the message that I was really into salmon and avocados as evidenced by Salmon Sandwich with Pesto Avocado Spread and Salmon Tartare. (I didn’t

(source) I have to admit something. I don’t always love nuts. But then I remember that they are kind of a perfect snack, and can be pretty darn delicious from time to time. Everyone likes peanut butter, right?  I just recently came around to raw almond butter, and now I slather it on toast, celery

On my last daily eats post, I asked if you would rather see a juice fast/cleanse or a day from Jillian Michael’s Making the Cut plan. Making the Cut was the clear winner and is a “30-day diet and fitness plan for the strongest, sexiest you!” It is a book I’ve had for quite some
