FFWD - Roasted Peppers


This week's bright and colourful French Fridays with Dorie dish is Roasted Peppers.  Yes, it is simple, but it is very tasty.

Basically, you just roast capsicums (peppers) of your choosing for an hour, then peel off the blistered skin, scrape out the seeds, slice into pieces, and season with olive oil, salt and pepper.  You may also sprinkle some fresh herbs on top (I used parsley and basil).  Not bad!

You can eat these as a starter, or as a side, or chop them up and inlcude them in another dish.

To see what the other Doristas thought of this recipe, visit the LYL section of the website.

I'm crazy for roasted capsicum. I usually put them in a plastic bag after roasting them as it makes taking the skins off easier!

After last week's salmon, it was nice to have an easy one this week!
I like the bright colors of those peppers.

Mardi Michels said...

Weren't these easy? Like Lorraine, I also put these in a plastic bag after roasting to help steam the skins. I can't believe I have never made these before - won't be the last time!

Beautiful!!! Love how vibrant your peppers are!

Emily said...

Looking colorful! It was easy but left me with a messy kitchen!

First time roasting peppers, it was okay. Let's see what I can do with the balance.

Roasted capsicum sounds so much fancier than roasted peppers! I made a few blunders, but they were still delicious!

Kathy said...

These were really delicious and so vibrant! Yours look lovely! Happy Friday!

This is something I have done for a number of years now, we love them. They certainly are colorful and
pretty.

Teresa said...

My list of things it's better to make at home has grown a lot in this group. Roasted peppers are definitely on it. I love how colourful yours look on the plate.

Easy and delicious indeed. Your plate looks fabulous. Nana will now be getting some competition in preparing these at home :) I can't believe I never made these before- leave it to French Fridays....

Betsy said...

What a colorful plate of peppers (capsicums)! I love how we have different names for some of the vegetables here and there :) I can't remember. Do you also eat courgettes and aubergines where we have zucchini and eggplants?

Cakelaw said...

Hi Betsy, we have zucchini and eggplants too - the Brits have courgettes and aubergines.

Diane Zwang said...

I am glad that I was not the only one who ignored the green pepper rule. We liked these too. Great photo.

Guyla said...

This was a good one, wasn't it? So simple yet so delicious!

Mary Hirsch said...

Yours looks pretty and delicious, Gaye. I think you even roasted a green pepper. Is that right. How did it taste. Dorie said they weren't as sweet as the others. Capsicum. Love that word.

Kayte said...

Oh these roasted peppers are the best photo you have ever taken...or maybe they are just the most photogenic. They look beautiful...pure art!
