How To - Roast Capsicums

Roast capsicums are incredibly underrated as they are so delicious!  When you realise how easy they are to make and how overpriced they are premade, you'll never buy them again.

What you'll need
  • Capsicums, red or yellow
  • baking tray
  • Baking paper
  • plastic bag
  • wooden chopping board
  • sharp knife
  • Spoon
Step 1 - Preheat oven to 230°C. Line tray with baking paper.
Step 2 - Cut the tops of each capsicums, scoop out the seeds and pith, put in the tray and place in hot oven.  Cook for 40-50 minutes, turning once halfway through.  Capsicums will blacken and blister during this process so don't be alarmed.
Step 3 - Remove capsicums from oven and transfer to plastic bag.  Tie bag to seal capsicums and set aside for 10 minutes.
Step 4 - Remove from bag and peel skin away from flesh.
Step 5 - Cut flesh into thin slices and store in a jar or container, covered in oil.
