So, here’s the thing. I’ve never made roasted red peppers before this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe but I’m now a convert and will definitely be making these for myself again soon. I’ve kind of always known that they are easy but roasted peppers always seem to lurk in the back of the fridge in a giant jar and I have never had to make them from scratch. Since I am not close to my book right now, I asked fellow Dorista, Cher, to help me out with the recipe which she did very succinctly in just a few tweets:
Heat oven to 425F. Turn peppers every 10-15 minutes until blistered on all sides. Dorie says [this takes] almost an hour. Mine only took 1/2 hour. When they came out of oven I wrapped in foil to finish steaming skins then peeled off the skins. If you follow any generic roasted pepper recipe you’re good. Dorie drizzles the finished ones in olive oil and herbs and lets marinate in the fridge before serving,
Honestly, so ridiculously easy!
The recipe can be found on p 112 of Around my French Table or on Dorie’s website here. For another take on peppers, check out my latest post on JamieOliver.Com – all about creative ways to make leftovers more appealing!

Many of you will know I’m in France for most of the summer. While I am slowly blogging about things I do here, the best way to keep up with me is by following my photos which you can do on my Summer 2014 set on Flickr or Instagram where I am @eatlivtravwrite (if you don’t have the app on your phone you can still check out the photos online.
