Ingredients

Red bell peppers (other colors work, too)
Extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

2. Line baking tray with aluminum foil.

3. Arrange washed peppers on lined tray. Space them out evenly.

4. Place tray in the oven. Roast the peppers, turning every 10 to 15 minutes for about 30 minutes until done.

5. Remove tray from the oven. Allow the peppers to cool in a covered bowl.

6. Once cooled, carefully remove the charred skin. Cut the tops of the peppers, and carefully remove the seeds.

7. Drizzle with olive oil and a little sea salt.

8. Serve or store in a covered jar or container in the refrigerator. Roasted peppers will keep for about a week.
