How to make oven roasted peppers

Ingredients (for two people)

  • 4 peppers (of the variety you prefer)
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • parsley
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • a pinch of salt
  • vinegar (if you like)
  • a food or paper bag (for example the one for bread) 

First wash and dry the peppers thoroughly and in the meantime turn on the oven at 200 ° for a few minutes. Arrange them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake them in the oven for about 35 minutes at 180 °, turning them a couple of times to obtain a more uniform cooking. Once cooked, take them out and place them still hot in a food bag or alternatively the paper bag used for bread. Let them rest for about 10 minutes. In this way, the steam that forms inside will help you to remove the skin more easily. When you have peeled them, cut them into strips and season with oil, a few cloves of garlic, vinegar and parsley. If you like it, you can also add a little vinegar.
