I went to BJ’s today to stock up on things like laundry detergent, fabric softener and plastic wrap, and I just couldn’t resist these mini sweet bell peppers! Id never seen them before – and I’m a sucker for cute things.
They were so tiny that the seeds were hard to clean out… After attempting to clean a few, I gave up and decided to leave them as-is.
We (finally) finished off the beef stew leftovers as our main dish. Instead of eating the peppers raw like I usually do, I decided to roast them. I forgot how wonderful it is to roast veggies in the fall and winter months – the heat isn’t unbearable, and it leaves such a nice scent lingering in the house.
I roasted them for about 30 minutes (15 minutes each side) at 400 degrees F. I didn’t bother to spray them with olive oil, and I had no problem with them sticking.
… and I always roast things on aluminum foil – it helps with the cleanup. One less thing for Stas to wash 🙂
