Roasted Red Peppers have a deep, sweet flavor. You know how a fresh red bell pepper still has a little bite to it? Well, roasting it takes that away and enhances the sweetness. And you only need two ingredients.
Roasted Red Peppers
Some people call red peppers “sweet red peppers” because they are a bit sweet, and the sweetness really comes out when you make Roasted Red Peppers. If you diced them up and put them in a jar of olive oil, you’d have pimientos. If I had a vegetable garden, red peppers would be growing in it. They are one of my favorite summer vegetables.
