Roasted Peppers are easy to make and taste delicious. Layered with olive oil and garlic, they become a perfect topping or filling for many uses. Any color peppers can be used.
Preheat grill or Heat oven 375 degrees. Note: this can also be done on a gas grill.
About halfway into the garlic roasting time, start roasting the peppers. Using a gas burner, heated grill or under a broiler, allow the bell peppers to char (blacken) on all sides. As one side blackens use tongs to rotate the pepper to char all sides fully.
Remove charred peppers from oven or grill and place in a plastic bag (sealed) OR a mixing bowl covered with plastic wrap. Allow to sit for 15-20 minutes.
Peel the charred skin off the pepper. TIP: using a dining knife, running under water and massaging can help remove stubborn skin. NOTE: if desired some of the charred skin can be left for looks and/or flavor.
Squeeze the garlic cloves out of their skin and toss with roasted pepper strips.
