Prevent your screen from going dark
Roast Red Peppers
Wash and clean red peppers
Cut in half and de-seed
Line a baking tray with aluminium foil
Place peppers skin side down on the foiled tray
Bake in a preheated oven at 200 C / 400 F for about 30 minutes turning them skin side up about half way thru
When roasted the skin will be black.
Take it out from the oven
Leave them on the baking tray lined with aluminum foil
Gather the corners of the aluminum foil up overwrapping the red peppers completely
Let cool wrapped for about 10 minutes - this will help the skin just peel off the peppers.
After 10 minutes skin the red peppers - cooling them wrapped helps separate the skin from the flesh.
Leave the garlic bulbs skin on.
Cut off the tail end slightly so you expose the garlic (see picture below)
Place them on a piece of aluminum foil large enough to wrap the bulbs
Add a tbsp olive oil, sprinkle salt and pepper
Wrap the garlic bulbs into foil
Place in the oven with the red peppers at 200 C / 400 F for about 30 mins.
After 30 minutes take them off the oven and let cool in the foil
Once cooled it's easy to just pick the garlic off the bull into a small bowl.
Two bulbs should make about ¼ cup

This will stay fresh in the fridge for up to two weeks.
